Server migration completed

We have completed the migration to a faster server, so we can offer better service to all of our valued customers. Since we move our server, our plugin needs to be updated in order to perform the Firewall rules and virus patterns update function.

For WordPress users, please update the plugin to 3.6.6, which can be accessed here.

For Joomla users, please update the plugin to 3.6.9, which can be accessed here.

A new kind of malware

We detected a new kind of malware today from a scanning, what it does are:

  1. Change the host file of the server, that means it affects not only your website, but ALL websites in the server (in the condition that the hack is successful)
  2. A shell code namely 1.sh will be injected into the user’s account
  3. A cronjob is created to run every minute to run the 1.sh shell code, so even if your website is clean, it will be immediately affected as the hacking was performed in the server wide but not only in your website account.

Here is a screenshot of the shell code

Centrora Panel 1.0.6 featured image v2

Centrora Panel 1.0.6 Updated with Easier and Securer functions

Centrora Panel 1.0.6 Updated with

Easier & Securer functions

Centrora Panel 1.0.6 v5

It’s been half a month since we released Centrora Panel, seems users are hesitate to use our Panel. After doing some research and analysing the situation, we noticed a critical problem with Centrora Panel is that it required you to enter the admin password while adding a website. (It is sensitive especially for website administrator to expose their password under concerns. Therefore, we improved our function by removing the requirement of password with a better and secure connection method. For now, Centrora Panel can now automatically detect your Centrora Security Plugin you’ve installed on your WordPress site simply by using your admin username and domain URL.

On the other hand, there’s a potential risk where your Centrora account is being hacked, and hackers will then able to  do anything to your websites. In order to keep your Centrora account safe, we have added Google Authenticator in our website. It’s optional but we highly recommend you to enable it for your Centrora account!
