Support » Plugin: Sucuri Security - Auditing, Malware Scanner and Security Hardening » Warning: curl_exec() has been disabled for security reasons

    Hi,

    The Sucuri Dashboard shows the message:
    Warning: curl_exec() has been disabled for security reasons in …/sucuri-scanner/sucuri.php on line 5357

    Also in the Dashboard “Error retrieving the WordPress core hashes. ”
    The malware scan doesn’t work either.

    I’m guessing I should probably contact the hosting company, as Sucuri works fine in other sites I manage, but just wanted to verify…

    (And sorry to ask two questions in a single thread, but if I try to test the site from sitecheck.sucuri.net it tells me that I’m running wordpress under 4.6 when I actually have 4.6.1 – a possible reason is that the theme seems to remove the generator meta tag)

    Thanks

    Ah yes, we use the curl library to execute the malware scans and store the audit logs. If you can get your hosting to enable it for you, the plugin will work.

    thanks,
