We are happy to announce a new update of our WordPress security monitoring plugin WP Security Audit Log. The new version of our plugin enables WordPress administrators and multisite network super administrators to accurately monitor all activity since milliseconds are also being reported in the alert time stamp. This new feature allows government and other compliance bound agencies and organizations to use WP Security Audit Log and still be compliant.
New Features in Version 1.2.0
The below is a list of new features we introduced in version 1.2.0:
Unlimited Alerts & Optional Auto Pruning Options
In previous versions of WP Security Audit Log administrators could store up to 5000 alerts. In this new version of the plugin administrators can keep as much alerts as they like. The alerts auto pruning options in the new version can also be enabled or disabled as desired.
More Accurate Alert Timestamps
The WordPress security alert timestamps in this new version of WP Security Audit Log will also include the milliseconds, as highlighted in the below screenshot.
Hide Plugin from WordPress Plugins Page
Administrators can now hide the WP Security Audit Log plugin from the WordPress plugins page from the plugins settings. This feature comes in handy should the WordPress site be hacked; if a malicious user manages to gain access to the admin dashboard, he cannot see the enabled plugin and disable it, hence malicious activity will still be recorded and logged.
Multisite Auto Complete Site Search
If there are more than 15 sites enabled on a WordPress multisite installation the site selection drop down menu is replaced with an auto complete site search box for a more practical site selection. Read the documentation WP Security Audit Log WordPres Multisite Features for more details about WordPress multisite support and features.
New WordPress Security Alerts
Like in every other version, in this new version we introduced a number of WordPress security alerts that enhance the security monitoring of WordPress and WordPress multisite blogs and websites. The new alerts introduced in this version of the plugin are:
- Alert 5007: User uninstalled (deleted) a WordPress theme
- Alert 5008: Super administrator network activated a WordPress theme in multisite
- Alert 5009: Super administrator network deactivated a WordPress theme in multisite
