Security update in our themes

Posted on

Some of you might have noticed that our main site ( was unavailable for a couple of hours these last few days. Unfortunately we were victims of two cyber attacks which altered our homepage. While it certainly didn’t look good, only the index file was affected, the database was never in jeopardy. Even if that was the case, your billing information will always be safe since transactions are processed by a third-party (2Checkout or PayPal).

Since some of our themes are based on similar code, we decided it would be best to update them up as well. Here’s a list of the themes that received an update:

  • GeoPlaces v4
  • eComFramework
  • Realtr
  • Events v2
  • JobBoard v3
  • RealEstate v2
  • DailyDeal
  • Classifieds
  • Tevolution (can be auto-updated)

To make sure something like this doesn’t happen to you, please update your theme to the latest version. The latest version will be available in the good ol’ place, member area:

In case you’re not familiar with updating please read the following article. If you’re running a customized site (and can’t update all files) just open the change_log (available in member area), the files you must change will be listed there.

We apologize for this inconvenience and hope you will not have to go through the same thing. Of course, if you’ll need any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

    Yes, security is important. Many of you themes have very old, timthumb.php. Not to good I guess…

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      We have upgraded all the themes with new version of timthumb already. Technically, upgrade from old version was not required as we already removed the code line that was a security threat in older version of timthumb.

      Anyway, we are also working on getting rid of timthumb completely from our themes and replacing it with default WordPress images now.

    Hi will the site lock that hostgator offers will provide security from hackers? I have geoplaces
    Version 4.5.9 is that version vulnerable? I cant update it because i make many changes to the template. Thanks

      Hi Noel
      Site Lock from HostGator can probably help with some attacks but there is no way it can stop them all. Version 4.5.9 is fairly recent and doesn’t have any known vulnerabilities. That said, you should update to the latest version if you can.
