File Upload Validation Plugin | OJS Hacking and Security Solutions

Release Date: Jan/2/2017


OpenJournalSytems.com is proud to announce the release of the OJS File Upload Validation Plugin, a security plugin designed to block the upload of malware through the OJS submission process. This exciting new plugin enables the Admin/JM to choose from the plugin setting, the types of files allowed to be uploaded by author during the submission process.

Recently, there has been a sharp increase in OJS hacking incidents (See Recent Article). This has posed a very difficult challenge to Public Knowledge Project (PKP) to improve the security of their programs. This challenge was what lead OpenJournalSystems.com to create the OJS File Upload Validation Plugin for its clients.

This new exciting plugin prevents the upload of OJS malware, such as PHTML shellcode files, which are used by hackers to gain access to an OJS web server and upload malicious files. The File Upload Validation Plugin takes 5 minutes to install and configure
