GD Security Toolbox Pro 1.7: Dionysus

GD Security Toolbox Pro 1.7 is the new update focused on the updates to events log, enhancing built-in Antispam addon, improvements to the VirusTotal and Sucuri scanners and more.

This new version is improving the Antispam addon with the new events and new bbPress related features. Now, there are new events fired when the administrator or moderator marks comment, trackback or bbPress topic and reply as spam. And, for bbPress, plugin registers anew role: ‘Spammer’. This role gives user ability only to read public forums, and nothing else. And, when you mark topic or reply as spam, the plugin can automatically assign Spammer role to the author.

The plugin now uses GeoJS service to get geolocation information for logged IP’s. And, Sucuri and VirusTotal scanners are improved with SSL support for cURL calls, input checkup and more. The plugin includes various under the hood updates and some minor bug fixes.

If you notice any problems with the plugin, stop by the support forums to report it. Let me know what you think about the new version, and as always, suggestions are welcome.
