!!! THIS VERSION REQUIRES XENFORO 2.2.0 AND PHP 7.2.0 !!!

This version contains coding style updates and changes for XenForo 2.2.0 / PHP 7.2.0.

XenForo 2.2 features two new "Security lock" features that function slightly differently than the account locks already present in DragonByte Security. These two new features can now be used as Watcher actions where possible.

Furthermore, a couple bugs have been resolved.

This version is flagged as a Beta version, although it has been tested on a live site.


Complete Change Log

Feature: The two new "Security lock" features in XenForo 2.2 can now be used as Watcher actions where this makes sense
Fix: Fix TOR exit node handling
Fix: Handle a 404 response from HIBP
Update highlights

This is a quick update to fix a logged error stemming from incorrect handling of a 404 error when calling the Have I Been Pwned? API.

Did you know that there are actual email accounts out there that have never been a victim of a data breach? Neither did I. How long ago was this feature implemented, 1-2 years ago? Crazy.

PS: For those waiting for a XenForo 2.2 version, it's still in testing @ DBTech.

Fix: Handle a 404 response from HIBP
Update highlights

This version brings the return of the login session management feature from the XenForo 1.5 version. The previous session management version had some issues, namely in that deleted sessions would be re-generated if the other browser instance wasn't already being logged out.

With v4.4.0, deleting a login session will force the other session to end, as was always intended.

This version updates the "Account locked" function to log its state changes in the user change log, similar to other flags in the core XenForo product.

It also resolves a potential server error on install, if the API that fetches the country list is inaccessible.

Update highlights

This version is a quick maintenance update to fix some reported bugs, as well as improved compliance with the XenForo Resource Guidelines.

The most important fix is PHP 7.4 compatibility; PHP 7.4 is now officially supported.


Complete Change Log

Change: Updated internal data path references to better support CDNs
Fix: Fix curly brace syntax for PHP 7.4
Fix: Fixed an issue where adding a closure / anonymous function to config.php could cause issues with the config tamper detection
Update highlights

This version is a major upgrade, adding support for various kinds of security keys (such as a YubiKey) to the Two-Step Authentication feature, as well as the password confirmation screen.

Setting up a security key as a two-step authentication method is as easy as it is on any other site; navigate to the Two-Step screen in XenForo, and click "Enable" next to "Verification via security key". Once enabled, repeat visits to the Two-Step screen can also take advantage of your security key to bypass needing to enter your password.

This feature even works with "Windows Hello", found in the Microsoft Edge browser for Windows 10. You don't even need a physical security key!
(The computer needs to support the Trusted Platform Module to enable this feature.)

You can see this in action @ www.DragonByte-Tech.com if you own a FIDO-U2F or FIDO2 compatible security key.

Please be aware that this feature requires PHP 7.2.0 or newer. It will not appear for users on your site if you are running PHP 7.1 or older.

Update highlights

This version is an "emergency" update to address the closure of the existing HaveIBeenPwned integration, which powers the "Account breach checker" feature.

v3 of their API requires authentication, and a monthly payment to continue using it. Please see the blog entry on the creator's website for more information: https://www.troyhunt.com/authentication-and-the-have-i-been-pwned-api/

It is not possible to continue using the existing API found in v4.2.6 or earlier. If you are unable or unwilling to update to this version, please disable the account breach checker to prevent further problems.


Complete Change Log

Change: Updated HaveIBeenPwned integration (account breach checker) to use v3 of their API
