ImunifySecurity announced the release of Imunify360 v.5.4.2. The latest version brings various features and improvements. The new version offers Nginx support for “no panel” installations, the gradual removal of “delete” and “quarantine” actions, and Malware Database Scanner improvements.
Imunify360 team stated that it’s the best time to install Imunify360 to protect servers proactively from all known threats, including all sorts of L7 attacks, malware, and web spam, for the users managing an Nginx powered server no matter if a custom panel installed or not. The latest version allows users to easily configure Imunify360 with a few simple steps on a panel-less setup. The company also published detailed documentation on how to configure Imunify360 with Nginx and ModSecurity v3.
Gradual removal of default actions
Imunify products allow users to choose one of the several ways of handling malicious files in the Malware Scanner. Imunify360’s Cleanup option includes everything needed to allow users to remove the malware safe and effective, and the websites remain operational afterward, unlike the quarantining and deleting the entire malicious files. Version 4.5 introduces the first step of “Delete” and “Quarantine” Default Action removal in the Malware Scanner UI.
The options will still be available via the configuration file and the CLI, but they will be removed from the Settings’ drop-down list. The company stated that it will be removed completely in v5.8, which is expected to be released in 3-4 months and all new installations will have “Cleanup” as Default Action.
Malware Database Scanner improvements
The Imunify team also announced improvements to its database scanning engine, allows admins to detect and clean-up injections with various malicious and blacklisted URLs in the WordPress database. It will automatically update the URL blacklists and detect all known malicious injections.
