Since we initially released jHackGuard back in 2010, it has been shipped with all the Joomlas installed on SiteGround servers and has additionally been downloaded more than 86,000 times from our download pages.

Today we are happy to announce the release of a major jHackGuard update which greatly extends its functionality.
