WP Cerber Security 7.7

We continue improving the plugin and its comprehensive security algorithms.

New. Automatic cleanup of malware and suspicious files. This powerful feature automatically deletes trojans, viruses, backdoors, and other malware. Cerber Security Professional scans the website on an hourly basis and removes malware immediately. By default automatic removal is disabled. It’s advised to enable it.

Update. Email reports for scheduled malware scans have been extended with useful performance numbers and a list of automatically deleted malicious files if you’ve enabled automatic malware removal and some files have been deleted. These files can be restored by using a link in the report. Click the link to open a Quarantine page with filtered results of the last scan.

Update. Algorithms of the malware scanner have been improved to detect obfuscated malware code more precisely for all types of files. This applies for the quick and full scans. As well as for automated recurring scans.

Possible issues have been eliminated

A possible issue with uploading large JSON and CSV files. When Traffic Inspector scans uploaded files for malware payload, some JSON and CSV files might be erroneously identified as containing a malicious payload. An algorithm of handling those files have been improved to avoid this issue.

A possible Divi theme forms incompatibility. If you use the Divi theme (by Elegant Themes), you can come across a problem with submitting some forms. A form just doesn’t work, and you’re unable to submit it at all.
