[resolved] Website Defender Plugin doesn't scan JavaScript (5 posts)

    Just as an FYI for anyone using the Website Defender Plugin, an email I received this morning from them says this plugin only scans PHP code. From experience, I can say it does not detect malicious code in javascript files. There are some neat features in this plugin, but that seems like a huge gaping hole for a security scanner.

    Hi Dakwegmo,

    We contacted you later on after you received that email that you were given wrong information from our support department, and we excused ourselves for this misinformation.

    As explained later on, we do not scan only PHP code, far from it. Also, please note that WebsiteDefender is still in BETA and currently we are working on several improvements on the malware databases.

    We would appreciate if you do not distribute incorrect information, and again thank you for showing interest in our product.
