AIOS WordPress Security Plugin – Release 5.1.6

The latest version of the WordPress Security Plugin from UpdraftPlus brings two new features to both the free and Premium versions of AIOS in addition to a series of tweaks and some fixes.


New Security Feature – WordPress Salts Extended

WordPress Salts are a cryptographic tool that makes it difficult for malicious users to crack your WordPress website login password. 

In release 5.1.6 of the All-In-One Security plugin, WordPress Salts are extended by 64 characters and changed weekly to make it even harder for malicious users to read your users’ WordPress passwords. 


New Security Feature – Audit Log

Another new feature is the addition of an audit log. 

The audit log is a table that gives WordPress website administrators a full view of all events happening on their WordPress website. 

Release 5.1.6 provides information on plugin and theme events. Admin users can now see if a plugin or theme has been added, removed, updated, activated or deactivated. 

Future releases will build on this version, allowing users to see a broader range of events taking place, for example logins, failed logins, user registration events, firewall events and more.
