Joomla recommended .htaccess updates was created by brett@whitmas.com
With Joomla 3.9.21 and 3.9.22 there are some recommended updates to the .htaccess file

Since 3.9.21 Joomla is shipped with an additional security rule in the default htaccess.txt. This rule will protect users of svg files from potential Cross-Site-Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.
The security team recommends to manually apply the necessary changes to any existing .htaccess file, as this file can not be updated automatically.

Before 3.9.22 the default htaccess.txt file contained erroneous code meant for disabling directory listings. The security team recommends to manually apply the necessary changes to any existing .htaccess file, as this file can not be updated automatically.

Is it safe to apply these changes with Security Check Pro in place?

Thanks and regards
Brett
