We’re excited to announce that SiteLock earned Gold, Silver, and Bronze recognition across multiple categories in the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards!
SiteLock® INFINITY™ took home the Gold in the Best Website Security category, further reinforcing its reputation and performance as an industry-leading malware and vulnerability detection and remediation solution.

In addition to protecting the three most popular CMS platforms Joomla!, WordPress, and Drupal, SMART PLUS now protects the two most popular eCommerce platforms: WooCommerce and Magento.
On January 16, 2017 WordPress released version 4.9.2, which included several security updates, as well as bug fixes for all versions after WordPress 3.7. WordPress has reported that a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was found in a group of files used to play Flash videos, which was included with all WordPress versions after 3.7. However, because most browsers no longer require these files to play video content, upgrading to version 4.9.2 removes these files. Due to the nature of XSS vulnerabilities, it is highly recommended that WordPress users update their websites immediately to avoid possible compromise.
WordPress notes the following bug fixes and features in particular:
- Browser issues specific to Mozilla Firefox that prevented saving posts have been corrected.
- Widget settings will be restored when switching themes in the application settings.
SMART PLUS, SiteLock INFINITY, and Patchman users are protected from this security issue, as SMART/PATCH and the Patchman libraries have been updated with secure patches that protect plugins and themes reliant on their current versions. It is still advised that website owners plan full version upgrades as soon as possible to take advantage of the new features and full list of bug fixes in WordPress version 4.9.2.

Patchman, best known for patching application vulnerabilities and helping hosts stop abuse before it begins, is expanding its product offering for the first time since being acquired by SiteLock in July 2017. Patchman, which is based in the Netherlands, was founded in 2015 with the goal of securing CMS applications from the hosting provider level to protect customers who did not update their applications in a timely manner. Up until now, Patchman has focused on the “Big Three” of open source content management systems – WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal – covering core application vulnerability patches. Now, for the first time, Patchman is expanding their offerings into both ecommerce and plugins – offering patches for Magento core vulnerabilities and WooCommerce vulnerabilities.
