  • + Code adapted to ensure compatibility with Joomla 4(Only Pro version).
  • + Fixed minor bug in file manager (thank you very much for reporting this sacreoiseaux!)(Only Pro version).
  • Now we check when the file list is empty to avoid warnings.
  • + Improvements in htaccess protection (thank you very much for your contribution Lukasz!)(Only Pro version).
  • Now we can also choose the option to redirect from www to non-www.
  • + jQuery library updated to the latest version(Only Pro version).
  • + Improvements viewing firewall logs (Only Pro version).
  • Now every ip has a link to check whois information with a simple click. This will give us more info to avoid blocking some websites like Google or Facebook due to a false positive.
  • + New feature: clean tmp directory (Only Pro version).
  • Now we have the option to clean the tmp folder with one click.
  • + Fixed bug in .htaccess protection (thank you very much for report this Demis!)(Only Pro version).

May 15 2019: Released version 3.1.7

  • + Adjust code to avoid false positives (Only Pro version).
  • Since 3.1.6 version all firewall rules are applied to all groups, causing false positives to privileged users. I have adjusted the code to avoid this.

May 13 2019: Released version 3.1.6

  • + Database update until Mar 11 2019 (5 new Joomla core and 5 new vulnerabilities added) (both versions).
  • + GeoIP database updated (Only Pro version).
  • + Malware database updated (Only Pro version).
  • + Improvements in file integrity(Only Pro version).
  • Now we see a list of all extensions updated/installed since last integrity scan. This way we have more information to mark files as safe.
  • + IImprovements in firewall rules (Only Pro version).
  • In the past "Super users" group were excluded from firewall rules as I considered it as a "privileged" group. This could be used to launch certain attacks with success. Now firewall rules are applied to all groups, increasing security. If for some reason do you want to excluded any group, just go to Configuration -> Rules Management. Also the XSS filter has been improved to detect javascript events and cut connection, as some attacks are successfully if we have the "redirect after an attack" option enabled.
  • + Fixed style bug in 'View Track actions logs' (Only Pro version).
  • Css file was not loaded.
  • + Improvements in "File injection" option of .htaccess protection (thank you very much for reporting this Philippe!) (Only Pro version).
  • Now this option preservers the scheme.
  • + Modified non-executable extensions list (thank you very much for reporting this Philippe!) (Only Pro version).
  • Now .pdf files are also excluded when "Scan executable files only" is enabled.
  • + Changes in firewall config to avoid a mod_security rule (Only Pro version).
  • Some words used in the "second level protection" tab are detected as php injection by a mod_security rule. Now its content is previously encoded before sending the form to avoid this issue.
  • + Added some missing strings in "Spam Protection" tab (thank you very much for reporting this Carlos!) (Only Pro version).
  • + Fixed bugs with css and javascript added in previous version (Only Pro version).
  • + Fixed bug in malware scanner detecting enconded content on IIS (thank you very much for your patience Glen!) (Only Pro version).
