GeN4 Secure+ (1.0.5) GPT/PTC/Bux Script Released
November 9, 2010


I’ve been analyzing this industry and realized what it needed is improved security. Scripts right now try and protect themselves, but ultimately, they fail. This costs the owners of the sites thousands of dollars. I envisioned a GPT system that was hack proof, solid, and reliable. This vision is now reality.

We’re proud to announce the release of GeN4 1.0.5 later today, which we’ve named GeN4 Security+. This release implements our exclusive advanced security system that we just finished stress testing. There is no other security system in any GPT script(maybe any commercial script) that is this sophisticated and intelligent. It’s time for a change. It’s time for the scripts to fight back.

What our Security+ system does:
-Automated complete banning(user name, email, hostname, etc.) of anyone that even attempts to exploit your site.
-Automated banning of vulnerability scanners.
-Automated banning if anyone tries SQL, XSS, HTML, JavaScript, Tamper Data, or any other type of injection.
-Automated banning of anyone attempting to cheat the system
-Completely configurable from your admin area.
-See everything the system does. You can see who the system banned, when, why, what they tried, etc.
-This system gives you peace of mind about your site security and frees up your time so you can make more money.

In short, every query of the script is passed through this system, thoroughly checked, and than processed. We also optimized this system so that it hardly uses any of your server resources. In fact, it had the surprising ability to speed up queries much of the time.

That’s not all, for this release we’ve also:
-Checked every script query and transaction for vulnerability. Fixed and rewrote any possible exploits.
-Rewrote our rented referral system to make it completely reliable.
-Improved the proxy security and added database logging for events.
-Fixed all bugs and issues reported by sites running GeN4. The script is performing perfectly on sites with over 50,000 users.
-Modified the default CAPTCHA system to be more secure and configurable.
-Improved and secured the built in forum.
-Added more filtering options for all advertisement types, payments, and users.
-Rewrote default text and tooltips to better fit a GPT site.

Those are the major additions, many other small changes have been made to increase usability and improve functionality. As usual, this upgrade is free for our customers.
