    • Changes to files, database and security settings from admin area are now blocked by default. They should be approved beforehand (e.g. by means of uploading a confirmation file via FTP or allowing the admin’s IP).
    • Smarty security mode is enabled
    • Passwords storing mechanism has been cardinally revised.
    • The execution of cleanup.php is Auth_key-protected.
