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.

Performance and usability are great. The fact that it integrated into tabber without any problem testifies to the quality of the plug-in.
The plug-in is very powerful but easy to use, in part, because of the excellent documentation (including code snippets). Support was excellent. I requested a change to the plug-in at about 10pm. I had an updated plug-in in my inbox at 7am.
But some days ago I started having problems after updating this plugin. The map wasn't showing up and I contacted Mike to see if he could help me.
Mike was really fast in his reply and pointed out where was the problem comming from. It turned out to be a problem related to another plugin developed by myself that was causing a conflit with googlemaps plugin.
It's really great to have a free extension like this available to everyone with this high level of quality.
Great experience. I will be donating to this plugin soon.
The plugin is perfect but the support that Mike provides is second to none.
Once this was identified (by date on filezilla), and deleted; then the zip installation method worked instantly.
This plugin is loaded with features, beyond my needs, so I selected "1x" for the "Google Api version". I left the "key" and "multi key" fields blank.
Set the coordinates to your own, edit the "on-page" code, enable the plugin, and off you go.
I wouldn't have found the issue, without Mike's intervention - every so often, we find help from a stranger thousands of miles away and it restores our faith in humanity.
Thank you very much,
For the Google API version use 3.x that is for the latest version of Google Maps API and this version does not require a key.
Google Maps API Version 1 does not exists.
