jomDefender 1.2 for Joomla 1.5 to 1.7 adds file integrity and more

Today, jomDefender 1.2 is released with support for Joomla 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7.

The following features have been added:

File integrity checks

When enabled this function will go through all of the files in your Joomla installation. It will check size, ownership, permissions, last modified time and file checksum, all this information is stored in the database. Each time the cronjob is ran it will check the files for any differences. If any file is different than previously checked, an email will go out with information to the administrator. This information can be used to alert of any hacked files or new files in the system.

Login/Logout CSRF prevention

This feature will check the referrer that the browser sends to the server. If the referrer does not match the domain of the current server the login or logout operation will be stopped.

That is it for now, hope you enjoy these two new features! And like I said, jomDefender is now available for Joomla 1.6 and 1.7!
