WP Cerber Security 8.6.3

While doctors around the world are fighting against COVID-19, we continue developing WP Cerber so you can protect your WordPress more effectively. This update brings the following improvements to your website.

  • New: A bulk load of access list’s entries. Use a new text field on the Tools admin page. Enter new access list entries, one item per line. To add optional entry comments, use the CSV format with a comma after an IP address, for instance, 192.168.11.*, My home network.
  • Improvement: a new malware scanner setting allows you to permit the scanner to change permissions of folders and files when required to delete suspicious and malicious code. Normally it should be enabled.
  • Bug fixed: The access list IPv4 wildcard *.*.*.* doesn’t work (has no effect). If you have such entry in your access list, no action is needed; the plugin fixes it by itself.
  • Bug Fixed: If the anti-spam query whitelist contains more than one entry, they do not work as expected. Read more: Configuring exceptions for the anti-spam engine
  • Minor bug fixed: Several settings fields are not properly escaped for displaying on the plugin settings pages
  • Minor bug fixed: saving plugin’s settings causes PHP Warning: Use of undefined constant CRB_NX_SLAVE in the error log
