We all already know what happened to e107.org just because we patched it few ours after the official release of 0.7.17.

We all already know what happened to e107.org just because we patched it few ours after the official release of 0.7.17. I'm trying to stay positive - we learned an important lesson, I hope e107 community did the same - a good example of what could happen if you don't apply critical security patch quick enough.

I also spotted first symptoms of panic. They were additionally fed by all kind of security organizations and blog posts, made before we were able to make any kind of statement, because we were busy to fix all current problems and investigate for any additional security vulnerabilities of e107 core (I'm glad the problem came from issue we were already fixed) I'm not angry about this - I know this is the only way of more traffic and popularity (let's call it marketing).

In other hand, I understand the worries of the people using e107 - especially those with less Development/Administration knowledge.

That's why I wrote a small tool and called it (don't ask me why) eCheck Security. I'm not gonna explain what it does here, because I did it already in my eCheck Security PHP tool - find malware on your site Blog post.
I hope this tool will make lot of people feel much more peaceful - at least this was my intention while I wrote it smile

Cheers
