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.

Even better, Mike is 150% dedicated. I had a problem with the directions not working in IE. I contacted him via mail with all the necessary information. Eighteen minutes later, I had a reply in my inbox with an attached new version that solved my problem. I am simply amazed.
I am donating to Mike today and would recommend the same to all who use his plugin, to keep the author going.
Mike got me an answer very fast.
All works perfect now!
Tip for new users, you can use an adress instead of coördinates. Just make sure you use all information ( street + number + city + state/province and country)
For me personally good service is nice to pay!! And yes when you need this man , do it you want regret it.
I put it in one "custom" module and it didn't show up at first. I sent an e-mail to the developer and Mike contacted me within 24 hours, checked my site and told me exactly what to do to fix the problem. The problem was already in the "checklist" but I had overlooked it. Thanks Mike.
Then, all you have to do is put your API key into the Plugin, and it should work, you'll have a map of Europe.
From there on, in 1.5, you can just remove all the parameters, and configure it from the back end without hacking code.
Very cool. Must have, I think...
The plug-in is easy to use, flexible and has a huge variety of options. For once I'm not waiting on some functionality to be implemented for the the add-on to be useful.
I had a couple of issues getting it running, and I was able to solve one quickly with the online FAQ, and when I couldn't fix the other issue, I wrote for support and heard back within the hour. My problem was quickly resolved and everything is working great.
Thanks for the great plug-in Mike! I had no hesitation about making a donation for this one.
Mike made the most professional Demo I have seen on Joomla.
Google Maps by Mike Reumer it's not good, it's PERFECT!
