  • Added new entry in csf.pignore on cPanel servers for v86+:
    exe:/usr/libexec/dovecot/imap-hibernate
  • Added Server Check for EOL PHP v7.1

Changes:

  • Changed mailman listings in csf.pignore on cPanel servers to cater for changes in python versions in RHEL v6/7 and 8
  • Fixed issue with CC_ALLOW_FILTER when not using IPSET but using SAFECHAINUPDATE would cause the new chain to be created in the wrong place by lfd when the zone is retrieved/updated

New csf v14.00

Changes:

  • Added alternative database for Country Code Lists and Settings. These do not currently require logins/keys and in some cases are better optimised. A new setting CC_SRC allows switching between sources. For new installations these new sources are used. Existing installations are configured to continue to use the MaxMind databases. See the “Country Code Lists and Settings” section in /etc/csf/csf.conf for detailed information
  • Added binary locations for CURL and WGET which will be tried if data retrieval fails when using the LWP perl module, e.g. on outdated OS’s
  • Added new option for URLGET setting “3”. This allow the use of either CURL or WGET instead of the perl modules
