Wordfence 5.0.4 Beta1 now available. Targeting tomorrow for release.
- Feature: We now scan for the infamous heartbleed openssl vulnerability using a non-intrusive scan method safe for production servers.
- Improvement: We now check if .htaccess is writable and if not we give you rules to manually enable Falcon.
- Improvement: Once Falcon is enabled, if we can’t write to .htaccess, we fall back to PHP based IP blocking.
- Feature: You can now clear pages and posts from the cache on the list-posts page under each item or on their edit pages next to the Update button.
- Fix: We now support sites who use a root URI but store their files and .htaccess in a subdirectory of the web root.
- Enabling and disabling Falcon Engine, specifically on sites that have a read-only .htaccess. And also on sites that have a http://example.com/ URL but where their files are stored in a subdirectory under the web root.
- If you run an openSSL site, test our HeartBleed scanning. Hopefully you’re not vulnerable. We’ve tested this on vulnerable sites and it shows a high degree of accuracy.
- Test page/post clearing from the cache on the admin page where you see all your pages/posts and on the edit page next to the publish button.
