Your Download ID has changed was created by Jose
Today we have published the new version of our site. We are now using the Joomla! 3.X branch. Due to the advanced security features in Joomla! 3.X, your Download IDs are being updated, affecting your ability to upgrade.

Our new site is now using Joomla! 3.3. This version of Joomla! is now using a more secure method to store your passwords in our database. Now, even if someone would take a copy of our passwords database it would take them hundreds of years to crack the passwords.

When you log in to our site for the first time your password is stored again using the new password scheme. The drawback is that this automatically changes your Download ID: the Download ID changes every time you change or reset your password and, technically, what happens behind the scenes is that Joomla! "changes" your password. As a result you will NOT be able to update our software unless you change the Download ID in all of your sites and click on the Refresh Update Information button afterwards.

For detailed instructions please check the page 49 of Securitycheck Pro user guide. You will find detailed instructions to locate your Download ID. Please follow these instructions to the letter on each one of your sites. If you fail to do so you will most likely get the error message "JInstaller: Install: Cannot find XML setup file" or "403: Forbidden" when trying to update. If this happens, please do follow the instructions on entering the Download ID to the letter, remembering to also click on the Refresh update information button on each software after entering the new Download ID.
