kareebu Secure is a Plugin that adds an extra layer of protection to your website. By default anyone can access the /administrator folder and see that you are running Joomla!.
With kareebu Secure enabled you can protect the /administrator folder with an extra password.
This is a fork of jSecure. What's different ?
kareebu Secure has two ways in which he can operate: HTTP Authentication and (old) Compatibility mode. Both modes have been tested and work without bugs.
kareebu Secure is FREE SOFTWARE released under GNU/GPL.
From last few we are trying to improve the security for my news portal website.
Goggled for most optimized solution to provide security to "/administrator" folder.
I tried almost all solutions, found "kSecure" is the best solution and available in as simple plugin.
Immediately we installed in all our joomla websites.
I re-activated my joomla account to review this plugin.
When you follow the instructions and click the second of the 2 radio buttons to activate this plugin - BANG - you're kicked out of the backend! (without having physically logged out). In my experience, if you try and log back in straight away - no joy - you are locked out of the site. Have a coffee, read your emails and come back after the default 15 mins - no problem. If you've set your admin down time to a longer interval - come back after you've timed out.
This I found out by trial and error - not sure it's written down anywhere. It works for me!
