First of All, I never ever right reviews. But this time I simply have to say that using this extension was the wisest decision I took.



Over the last 9 months I have been using SecurityCheck. I chose this after a lot of research into free and paid extensions, but this extension offered a lot, at no cost. One of my websites was hacked nine months ago and since installing this extension, the site has been protected from over 500 hacking attempts. I highly recommend this extension to all Joomla! users.



A big thanks to the developers for a wonderful extension.



Cheers,

Sriraag


Works right out of the box as a charm. Easy to install and configure, in the first week it already blocked 4 attacks.



It has become in a must have for me.


Sounds like a great extension to further protect our website. So far, it has given me good results and I hope you go further mejorandfo. diseñadors congratulations to this extension. Thank you.


Excellent Security


Posted on 06 November 2013

This works very well right out of the box, even for a novice. One thing, which takes some getting used to, is that it prohibits being logged onto the front and back ends at the same time. It took me awhile to figure out why but the developer got back to me very quickly and the reasons far outweigh the convenience of logging in to the front and back simultaneously. I would strongly recommend this component.


Among other things I run a member site for which I need better security. I chose to test Securitycheck.



At first I was impressed with the professional look and all different levels of security one may set, but when I wanted to show a possible customer the professionalism of the extensions, I uncovered that the htaccess protection was not working. Even though I had selected an extra admin url password, and the ext said everything was ok, there was no protection. I wrote to the forum and got the answer that I needed to upgrade and reinstall, but I do run all the latest versions, so I put reinstalling on hold and simply reverted to my previous backend protection with AskMyAdmin, which as proved itself over a long period.



My main purpose for using Securitycheck though, was the ability to blacklist IP numbers. I have a few "usual suspects" that ends up through Login Failed Log. The first two IPs are blocked, but the one's after that keeps trying to log in from time to time, regardless. So, probably something is askew even though the versions are ok. I still haven't found the time to make the reinstall for further evaluation.



Finally, today, I found a missing piece of function that made the decision for me. I need to create a few help admin profiles for specific tasks. I checked through all my extensions to set the permissions to No, but whoa!: this security extension lacks the Permissions settings in it's Global settings! I can't hide it from the other admins...



One would think that this would be a basic thing for a security extension that boasts about it's usefulness.



So, that's all folks. That was it for me. No more Securitycheck on my sites. I feel very much I just cannot trust it, which is a huge setback when it comes to an extension that is there to make me feel more secure.

Owner's reply: Hi Amema,

I respect your opinion, but I would like to clear some things for everyone who read your review:

Backend protection using htaccess files is working fine. Maybe it doesn't work for you, but believe me when I say this is a well tested
feature that works in thousand of sites that use the extension. If you understand spanish, you can read an article where the
blogger choose how this feature works (http://www.nosolocss.com/blog/joomla/proteger-el-acceso-al-backend-de-joomla).
You say you wrote to the forum and you got the answer that you need to upgrade and reinstall: THIS IS FALSE. Everybody can see the forum entry (http://securitycheck.protegetuordenador.com/index.php/forum/6-bug-report/160-htaccess-protection-doesn-t-protect)
I did some questions, but I didn't told you what you say. You posted it and I replied to you quickly, but you didn't reply to me again...
I'm sure there is a simple explanation to your issue, but you gave me no option to see what was happening.
I'm serious: if I offer a feature in my products, I'm sure it works. Of course you can found problems, but I don't going to offer
something that it doesn't work. It's a nonsense...


The extension works fine blocking two IP address, but the third you added is not blocked. Are you sure there is no typos?
Blacklist feature has no limits: it can block one or thousands of IP address. Of course, you said it's a problem of the extension...

Yes, the extension doesn't offer the ability to hide it from other admins. This is a must in my TODO list, but I haven't time to do it yet.

I'm really surprised about your review title. You say you don't trust in the extension but, did you do some test to prove the extension? How can you evaluate the extension if you don't do tests? Are you a security expert? I can offer lots of examples of how the extension works: you can see them under the 'Joomla Security' paragraph of the forum.


I do a great effort to offer this extension for free. Despite being a free product, it's comprehensively tested to protect against lots of threats. I have included several features to make admin's life easier (as the 'Easy config' option), but everything can be improved.

Regards.

excellent

I just installed this extension and just to say that so far, it is well programed and very intuitive. A nice view of what is happening on my website (admin attempt...).

Bravo, and thank you very much.

Alex


good job

After having one of our sites being hacked, I decided to do extra securitywork on it. After trying some components I stayed with this one because of the nice features.


Awesome Extension!


Posted on 25 March 2013

Security is becoming a huge issue and I manage about 100 Joomla sites so I test a lot of security extensions. This one works right out of the box, and it gives me a log of attempted exploits against the site, does a really good job.
