BulletProof Security
[resolved] Latest BPS update broke Timthumb Custom Code (4 posts)

    Hey guys,
    I just updated BPS to .48.8 and it seems that it no longer accept the "custom code" I have entered in section "CUSTOM CODE PLUGIN SKIP/BYPASS RULES: Add ONLY personal plugin skip/bypass rules here".

    Here is the code I am using which worked prior to updating BPS:
    # Theme Timthumb skip/bypass rule
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/[path/to/script]/(.*)timthumb\.php [NC]
    RewriteRule . - [S=13]

    So the code no longer works.
    If I manually add the code to thew root .htacceess file it works fine.

    I also tried adding the code to BPS custom code section:
    "CUSTOM CODE TIMTHUMB FORBID RFI and MISC FILE SKIP/BYPASS RULE: Add additional Referers and/or misc file names"

    Is anyone else having issues with the timthumb script since the latest BPS update?

    The Plugin skip/bypass Custom Code text area/box works the same as it did before. Double check that you are doing all of the Custom Code Setup Steps.

    Root htaccess File Custom Code Setup Steps
    1. Enter your custom code in the appropriate Custom Code text box.
    2. Click the Save Root Custom Code button to save your custom code.
    3. Go to the Security Modes page and click the AutoMagic buttons.
    4. Activate BulletProof Mode for your Root folder.

    For the new CUSTOM CODE TIMTHUMB FORBID RFI and MISC FILE SKIP/BYPASS RULE: Add additional Referers and/or misc file names text area/box requires that you copy the entire timthumb section of code into the Custom Code text area/box in order to add it to Custom Code.

    BPS Blue Read Me help button:
    For Custom Code text areas/text boxes the require that you copy the entire section of code that you want to edit and modify you will see this blue help text - "You MUST copy and paste the entire xxxxx section of code from your root .htaccess file into this text box first. You can then edit and modify the code in this text window and save your changes."
