In this release, the ability of WP-ZEP have been greatly improved. Previously, the probability of successful prevention against the zero-day attack (true positive) was estimated about 26%. But now it’s 60%. Please refer to this article about the background of these percentage. In this note, I’ll mention what’s new in 0.2.1.0.
When I go abroad, I want to manage my WordPress site as an administrator from there. To realize this, I’ve implemented a new feature which was proposed at the support forum. (Thanks, digiblogger !!)
This is a maintenance release including 3 of bug fixes and 3 of improvements. Every user of this plugin should update to make it work properly.
In this release, some new features and improvements have been implemented. These are based on the feedbacks I got at the support forum from my users.
I had to fix the bug which broke functionality of certain plugins such as Types.
In the last release 0.2.1.4, I announced the new feature to prevent self blocking. But this was not enough at the first installation. Every user hates a product which suddenly shuts him/herself out right after the first installation. This was the reason why I got one at the Reviews.
I’m very pleased to announce the release of IP Location Block 0.2.2.0. In this release, 2 new features are implemented to enhance its the protection ability against the malicious accesses. The estimated amount of true positive against preventing malicous accesses in the real world would be about 80% now.
IP Location Block 0.2.2.1 isn’t so attractive for you because there’s no new feature except several bug fixes, but it includes a very important alteration related to the IP address geolocation API for local databases of Maxmind and IP2Location. In this changelog, I’ll mention about it.
