A SECURITY RELEASE 3.1 of plugin Google Maps is released and this must be applied to your Joomla installation.
Also a (security) release 2.20 for all websites that still use Google Maps API version 2 and Google's geocoding version 2.
Because Google Maps API version 2 is deprecated from November, please upgrade to the latest version 3.1, version 2.x of the plugin is deprecated too!
The proxy solution (plugin_googlemap3_proxy.php) for kml files had the following vulnerabilities: Denial of Service, XML Injection, Cross-Site Scripting and Full path disclosure vulnerabilities.
In this version the proxy solution is not possible anymore. I am working on a new secure solution.
This version will automatically update in 2.5 and 3.x.
If you want to upgrade from version 2.x then:
1. Install the new version 3.1. This is a new plugin, it does not replace the version 2.x plugin!
2. Do not open the plugin configuration! First you need to enable the new system plugin called "System - Google Map" in the list of plugins by clicking the red dot in the status column. This is the only way to copy all your parameters from the old plugin to the new one!
3. After enabling the plugin in the correct way (point 2) you can check if the settings of the old plugin are copied correctly by opening the new plugin configuration settings.
4. After that you can disable the old system plugin called "Google Map"
This is a version that only support google maps api version 3! Version 2 is deprecated from November 2013 so we need to migrate.
Also added language support for all the parameters: English, French, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
Please send me language files so I can add them to the plugin. Goto my website to contact me.
Look at the demo site first for documentation. If you've problems please do the checklist on the site: http://tech.reumer.net/Google-Maps/Documentation-of-plugin-Googlemap/checklist-placing-plugin-in-article.html
If this doesn't help or you have questions or new wishes please fill in the form on my website with an url that shows the problem and version of the plugin and Joomla.

I am working on a site, for that I was searching for a suitable google map plugin and finally I choose this and got surprised by seeing features of it that too 100% FREE.
Unfortunately, in that site I faced some issue while using this plugin but Mike helped me then and there.
It was an excellent support, which we can't expect from any developer.
Mike: Again Thanks a lot!. Keep it up and all the best!
the plugin is working excellent.
and the support is very fast.
I use new version (3.1) for my new joomla web (version 3.1.5), I have problem with KML Sidebar, (and, surprisingly, although this is non commercial extension), Mike reply my email just in a few minutes and solve my problem..
thank you Mike, for your great plugin and kind support
This is of course the LEAST you can do, there're loads of other settings for you. well done guys, I remember the days back in Joomla 1.5 when you literally needed magic to add a Google map!
Only suggestion would be some sort of auto update feature, as I didn't see this appearing in my extension managers update. Other than that, perfect. Gold star.
The auto update feature is configured for the plugin for Joomla 2.5 and 3.x. But the update from Plugin version 2.x to 3.1 is not automatically because the plugin changed internally.
Keep in mind that the PHP configuration and Joomla has to be configured correctly.
The support to the product is excellent as well. I would higly recommend this plugin to anyone.
