Feb 24 2020: Released version 3.1.11

  • + Database update until Feb 24 2020 (5 new Joomla core added) (both versions).
  • + IMPORTANT: Geolocation services are no longer available(Only Pro version).
  • Due to the changes in Maxmind TOS, all services that provided geolocation are no longer available. This is, you won't be able to use the "Geoblocking" feature nor there will be geopraphic info from every IP added to logs, whitelist, blacklist, dynamic blacklist and so on. This has not been an easy decision, but taking into consideration their new terms of service and that spoofing the IP-based location has always been trivial I finally have chosen to remove this feature from Securitycheck Pro.
  • + Improvements in the method to determine the offensive IP (thank you very much for your contribution George!) (Only Pro version).
  • Now we can determine the real IP when we use a service like Cloudflare.
  • + Improvements in logs (thank you very much for your contribution George!) (Only Pro version).
  • Now the url is not truncated.
  • + Changes in default configuration (Only Pro version).
  • There are some settings that could potentially block an user after installing the extension (i.e. user session protection). For non-technical users this could be a great deal, so now I enable the 'Easy config' feature for new installations. This can reduce a bit the initial level of protection, but settings can be enabled after reading the user guide.
  • + Improvements in source code to adapt it to Joomla namespace. (both versions)
  • + New language available: Ukrainian (thank you very much for your contribution Dima!) (Only Pro version).
  • + Fixed bug related to control center connect plugin (thank you very much for your reporting this Erik!) (Only Pro version).
  • IPs were not added to be consumed by the plugin.

Dec 09 2019: Released version 3.1.10

  • + Database update until Dec 09 2019 (1 new Joomla core and 1 new vulnerabilities added) (both versions).
  • + GeoIP database updated (Only Pro version).
  • + Improve PHP 7.4 compatibility (both versions).
  • + Improvements in 'session hijack' protection (thank you very much for your contribution Juan Carlos and company!) (Only Pro version).
  • Now we have the option to select which elements (IP and/or User-agent) will be checked to avoid session hickjaking.
  • + Improvements in Geolocation (thank you very much for reporting this Compolaser!) (Only Pro version).
  • Now I check if, for some reason, there is no IP to check.
  • + Fixed small notice message checking scan files (Only Pro version).
  • + Joomla 4 compatibility till Alpha 12 (both versions).

Oct 16 2019: Released version 3.1.9

  • + Database update until OCt 16 2019 (1 new Joomla core and 3 new vulnerabilities added) (both versions).
  • + GeoIP database updated (Only Pro version).
  • + Improvements in malware scanner (thank you very much for your contribution Lukasz!) (Only Pro version).
  • To avoid false positives in "Code injected at the beggining of the file" method.
  • + Improvements in Control Center remote functions (thank you very much for your contribution Pete!) (Only Pro version).
  • If paid extensions to be updated use a 'download id', we will be able to remotelly update it using Control Center (previously I will need some info of the paid extension to modify the code to get the value of the 'download id').
  • + Fixed bug with bcmath file (thank you very much for reporting this Shibumi!) (Only Pro version).
  • + Fixed minor bug in .htaccess protection (thank you very much for reporting this Łukasz!) (Only Pro version).
  • The "Any attempt to access the ^.ht files" option was not shown as "applied".
  • + Improvement writing logs (thank you very much for reporting this Montaser!) (Only Pro version).
  • Now we use the timezone set in Joomla's Global configuration to calculate the timestamp set in logs.
  • + Fixed bug in the firewall (thank you very much for reporting this Pascal!) (Only Pro version).
  • There was a bug under certain circunstances when enabling the "forbid new admin accounts" option.

Dec 09 2019: Released version 1.1.30

  • + Added PHP version checking (thank you very much for your suggestion Komir!)
  • Now we show the same alert that Joomla core shows when our PHP version is outdated.
  • + Improvements updating paid versions (thank you very much for your contribution Pete!)
  • If paid extensions to be updated use a 'download id', we will be able to remotelly update it using Control Center (previously I will need some info of the paid extension to modify the code to get the value of the 'download id').
  • + Improvements showing buttons (thank you very much for your suggestion Martyn!)
  • Now the buttons are "sticky" and are shown at the bottom when we scroll down.
  • + Joomla 4 compatibility till Alpha 12
