Yes, it can access other websites and data using PHP shell code. When you are hosting different website, it is recommended to use the operating system like CloudLinux with CageFS to restrict it. Unless you have such type of restriction, it is possible to access any data and even critical system files like passwd etc.

VPS Hosting / Re: Connect VPS with domain

If your subdomain is redirecting to wrong URL, it is most likely related to your nginx configuration or .htaccess rule issue. You should review your .htaccess rule and nginx configuration. Also, it is recommended to activate free Let's Encrypt SSL so that you can use HTTPs for your subdomain.

WordPress performance and website speed depend on many factors including WordPress Hosting environment, theme selection, plugins etc. The basic steps are as follow:

  • Select the best WordPress hosting provider
  • Do not select theme having too much options. Just find the suitable and lightweight theme
  • Do not install too much plugins. Just install only necessary plugins
  • Use caching plugin like Litespeed Cache (Lscache), W3 Total cache, WP Super cache etc.
  • Use optimized image with lazy load
We have detailed KB of WordPress speed and performance optimization. You can refer our article WordPress Speed and Performance Optimization Tips.

After recent cPanel update to cPanel v98.0 on CloudLinux 6 server, clamd is failing as follow:


/scripts/restartsrv_clamd --start
Service "clamd" is already stopped.
[...............]
Startup Log
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/clamd: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre2-8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

clamd has failed. Contact your system administrator if the service does not automagically recover.


This is due to a missing shared library object (libpcre2-8.so.0) file that is required by ClamAV which you can confirm by this:
ldd /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/clamd
[...............]
libz.so.1 => /lib64/libz.so.1 (0x00007f64ae2db000)
libpcre2-8.so.0 => not found
libm.so.6 => /lib64/libm.so.6 (0x00007f64ae056000)
[...............]


The libpcre2-8.so.0 shared library file is provided by the pcre2 package. However that package fails to be installed as a dependency when ClamAV is installed on the server.

Workaround

To get around this issue, you can manually install the missing package and then restart ClamD:

yum install pcre2

/scripts/restartsrv_clamd --start

CVE-2020-1530 and CVE-2020-1537 – Windows Remote Access Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability

Microsoft has recently released a security update for all supported operating systems. An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows Remote Access improperly handles memory.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would first have to gain execution on the victim system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application to elevate privileges.

The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Windows Remote Access handles memory. A privilege elevation vulnerability (CVE-2020-1530 and CVE-2020-1537) affects all supported versions of Windows server so far.  This vulnerability exists when Windows Remote Access improperly handles memory or file operations. The exploit requires an attacker to have execution capabilities on the victim system. Systems hosting websites or with web-accessible services are particularly vulnerable.

Vulnerabilities / SMF 2.0.17 Released
December 31, 2019, 06:03:12 PM
Simple Machines has released a new patch to the 2.0.x line of SMF, bringing our latest release version to 2.0.17.

We consider this patch to be of crucial importance, as it includes an important fix for a critical bug that was introduced in SMF 2.0.16.

  • Fixes a bug that could cause SMF 2.0.16 to start consuming significant amounts of CPU-resources when the RSS function was used.
  • Eliminates some deprecated function warnings when using SSI.php on PHP 7.2+.


Please see the changelog for more information.

Since SMF 2.0.17 is essentially what 2.0.16 was intended to be and 2.0.16 was released only a few days ago, we are including a (slightly updated) version of the SMF 2.0.16 announcement for your convenience:

SMF 2.0.16 contained important security and bug fixes, as well as support for the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. We recommend updating as soon as possible.

Notable changes in 2.0.16 & 2.0.17

  • Support for privacy policy in addition to registration agreement
  • GDPR Compliance toggle in Core Features
   Enabling this configures multiple settings and new features to comply with the GDPR, including:
  • Requiring members to accept the current privacy policy in order to use the forum
  • Asking during registration whether the new member wants to receive announcements via email
  • Enabling token-based unsubscribe links in emails so members can unsubscribe without logging in
  • Allowing members to download a copy of their profile information
  • Adjusting the behaviour of a number of other features in minor ways as necessary
  • PHP 7.2 support
  • Improved security hashes for the image proxy
  • Improved security for the login cookie
  • Assorted other security improvements
  • Various improvements for both the installer and upgrader

Vulnerabilities / SMF 2.0.16 Released

  • Improved security for the login cookie
  • Assorted other security improvements
  • Various improvements for both the installer and upgrader

Please see the changelog for more information.


IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • If you are using the GDPR Helper mod, you should follow these steps:
  • Back up your existing privacy policy text to a file somewhere
  • Update the GDPR Helper mod to its latest version
  • Uninstall the GDPR Helper mod
  • Install the SMF 2.0.16 patch

All users, including the admin, will need to log in again after 2.0.16 has been installed.

How to update to 2.0.16

If you are running version 2.0.15, you can update your forum to the latest version by using the package manager. You should see the update notification in the admin panel notifications and in the package manager, which will allow you to download and install the patch seamlessly.  If you do not see the notification about the patch, please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files" from the Scheduled Tasks page (Admin > Maintenance > Scheduled Tasks).

If you use older versions of SMF, you can upgrade directly to 2.0.15 from whichever version you are currently using by using the "Large Upgrade" package from the Download page. Be aware that using this upgrade method will require you to reinstall any customizations that you have added to your forum, so if you are running a version of the 2.0.x series, it is recommended that you apply the successive patches instead of using the Large Upgrade.

If you are having problems downloading the patch from the admin panel, you can download the patch package from the Package Manager Updates page and install it via the Package Manager, as you would any other mod package.

Please refer to the Online Manual for more details about patching and upgrading.
