Apr 17 2017: Released version 2.8.19

  • + Database update until Apr 17 2017 (46 new vulnerabilities added) (both versions).
  • + Improvements in malware scanner (thanks for your contribution Igor!) (Only Pro version).
  • + Fixed bug in Control Center (Only Pro version).
  • Fixed bug updating the Joomla core using Securitycheck Pro Control Center in PHP 7.
  • + Improvements in .htaccess protection (Only Pro version).
  • Now we can choose to which url will be redirected all attempts to access the backend without the secret key.
  • + Fixed minor bug exporting info(Only Pro version).
  • If the site name contains spaces filename to be exported was generated without the extension.
  • + New feature: url inspector (Only Pro version).
  • The url inspector allows us to ban IPs that use forbidden words in urls. This way we have a powerful mechanism to control all queries to our website, even those that are redirected to a 404 page. For example, if we receive an url to access to wp-admin.php, that is typical of Wordpress sites, the url inspector can be configured to add the IP to blacklist because it's clear that it's not a valid query. This feature doesn't break other sef extensions installed.
  • + Changed log icons (Only Pro version).
  • All icons have been replaced with new ones with a more fresh style.
  • + Fixed minor (and rare) issue causing a blank page on main panel (Only Pro version).
  • In some websites a blank page arises accessing to main panel. This was due to an accent in a javascript comment!
  • + Improvements in default banned user-agent list (thanks for your contribution Marko!) (Only Pro version).
  • + Minor improvement in geoblock Geolite update (Only Pro version).
  • Now we see the error code if for some reason the extension can't reach Maxmind servers.
