    I have noticed that all my sites that are running BPS won´t do updates using WPREMOTE.com feature.

    Today I was on with support and they noticed that the plugin is getting a 403 error. He wrote and told me this:

    It seems the backup requests to these sites return a "403 Forbidden" response, this may be because you are using some kind of firewall plugin that is rejecting requests with path sin the URL (for e.g.: ?exclude=/wp-content/backups/.

    Then he wrote back to do this, but it didn´t work:

    I think this line may be causing the issue:

    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} [a-zA-Z0-9_]=/([a-z0-9_.]//?)+ [NC,OR]

    Could you try removing that, then see what you get if you try and do a backup?

    Just was curious if you had any thoughts how I might be able to allow BPS to allow these backups.

    Yes this a known issue and the solution is here >>> http://www.ait-pro.com/aitpro-blog/2252/bulletproof-security-plugin-support/checking-plugin-compatibility-with-bps-plugin-testing-to-do-list/#wpremote

    I sent them an email about this over a month ago, but i guess it got lost in the shuffle.
