Important security upgrade!

All users are required to upgrade to the latest XCloner version, we have added several security and bug fixes!

It has come to our attention that there are several vulnerabilities in the standalone cron and restore script, upgrading to the latest version will fix those issue.

As always, if you move the restore script to a folder outside XCloner for restore, once you are finished, as indicated also on the restore page, please delete the XCloner.php file.

Please visit our Downloads area or our Free forums if you have questions!

    Hi Ovidiu,

    First of all A great piece of software! well done.
    Just maybe something to add, or for anyone that reads this. The folder /administrator/backups only has an index.html file to prevent directory listing.

    I added a .htaccess file to prevent acces to the files because with a little guessing one could obtain backups.
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from

    not sure what your thoughts are on this, anyways a wicked product and thanks for the time you spend on it,

    Hi I have updated my plug in but still see the xcloner upgrade recommended. What version should I have? Is there a way to turn off the upgrade message?

    • Hi Russ! The notification system is being run by a banner manager, i have adjusted the display limit per user, so the message will disappear soon!

      Sorry for the inconvenience. Regards, Ovidiu
