* A new AJAX interface to manage entire extension quickly and easily.
* Web Firewall
The web firewall has been tested against more than 90 SQL, LFI and XSS attacks patterns, and includes the following features:
- Events recording, which can be viewed by admins from backend.
- Redirection to a default page if an attack is detected.
- Second level protection to find suspect words.
- Session protection
* File Manager
You can check file/folder permissions and easily view misconfigured configurations.
* .Htaccess protection
Want to hide your backend url? Add a secret key to your admin page to prevent dictionary and brute force attacks.
* Vulnerabilities checking
Securitycheck performs a check of the versions of all the components of your Joomla installation, comparing them with its database to show if there are vulnerable extensions. Forget
individually test of every component to avoid vulnerabilities: Securitycheck does it for you.
* Akeeba Live Update integration
We have included this feature to easily manage and update new releases.
++ Please, read the user guide before install the extension.
PROS: Very simple to install and check site security status of installed components, there are regular updates, support is great and the developer takes security seriously.
CONS: The only con is this component doesn't scan plugins and modules.
All in all this is a great component and I would especially recommend this to novice webmasters as well as advanced Joomla webmasters. It is simple, effective and to the point.
Thank you for your review, B0RG!!
I take note of your suggestions for future developments.
and one fine morning it said
"It has been detected a sequence that could mean a hacker attack. Your request can not be processed." and with couple of php errors.
I don't know how long my site was that way.
Bugs are something I can understand, but if the site goes down with the above error and worst you cant even access the admin page. I afraid I can't suggest anybody to use this.
I am one advanced user of Joomla so I could recovery from it. I am wondering people with less knowledge of Joomla.
You didn't contact me in any way (forum or email) to see what was happening, but you put this bad review here...
You, as an "advanced user" of Joomla, should know that all extensions have to be tested in a test environment and, if you have any problem, contact with the developer.
You say your problem was a bug, but I will give you an example: some weeks ago I received an email of a person with a "problem" like yours: the plugin was blocking the entire site. After some test, we discovered that the template was saving patterns in a cookie that could be confused as an sql injection attack, so the plugin was working fine.
Did you read the documentation? If you have done it, you will know that every filter can be disabled if you have some kind of problem with any extension and that the plugin shows a 4xx error if an attack is detected.
Besides, the plugin has detected a set of attacks to my web, and it was all recorded and I was advised. It makes me feel safer.
It's easy and it's free. Maybe i'll update to pro version in the future.
A quite nice job, congratulations to developer.
