We're pleased to announce that a new version of RSFirewall! is now available for download on our website. This release is dedicated, almost in its entirety, to the extension's System Check feature, have a look!

System Check Improvements

Although no new features have been added, aside from the possibility to set a pause, in seconds, between requests - very useful if your hosting server is likely to regard you as an attacker when performing the System Check, this feature got some important tweaks meant to ease your experience in using RSFirewall!:


  • The detection of base64-encoded strings has been improved
  • If you have enabled XDebug in PHP, the System Check will no longer be available
  • More coherent error messages when the System Check fails

Other Enhancements


Google bot

The Google bot is a software that Google uses in order to crawl web pages around the world and create an index through which it can then perform its searches. This bot is prone to getting banned by website security software like RSFirewall! and, up until this point, you had to create an exception by white-listing it.

In the new version of RSFirewall! this is no longer necessary, as the component will do this automatically.


IPs black / white-listing

When specifying IPs for black / white-listing, they will be automatically trimmed in order to have the possible blank spaces removed.

XDebug/Disable

Hi Alexandru, thanks for answering to my concern... I had looked at that place where you directed me -and many others- before raising my issue, and it did not work. Thank you...!
