coreSecurity Pro 1.6

Version 1.6 of coreSecurity Pro is a smaller scope release focused on improving the antispam features, expanding dictionary pattern lists and firewall detection lists, and fixing various antispam and logging issues.

Since last month’s major update, the plugin has been tested extensively on several websites with a lot of traffic. Various aspects of the plugin have been improved, and new patterns have been added (around 100 new patterns are included). Plugin now has better targeting for the URL users can put in the comment website field or forms with a website field. Lists of disposable email domains and firewall referrers have been updated too. Finally, new Cleanup Tools have been added to remove all CSP and NEL reports without going through the coreActivity Cleanup Tools panel.

Multiple issues related to antispam features have been resolved, especially with the antispam features for bbPress topics and replies. A few problems with IP banning have also been resolved.

The list of banned IPs that the plugin can get through the Bridge feature from the Dev4Press API has grown and now includes 2000+ IPs that have been known as a source of spam or malicious bot activity in the past few weeks. It is highly recommended that you use the Bridge feature to get instant protection from this big pool of IPs.

More new features are in the works for the next few updates, and from now on, we will keep up with one release a month, with minor updates added in between if some very important pattern updates need to be available as soon as possible.
