PW 3.0.230 – Core updates and new LoginTimer module


Recommended Posts

This week the ProcessWire core dev branch version has been bumped to 3.0.230. Currently we are about 10 commits ahead of the main/master branch. Relative to that branch, we have 5 issue fixes, 2 pull requests, major improvements to the wireIconMarkup() function and some minor improvements to the ProcessLogger module. We may merge these updates (among others) to the main/master branch as soon as next week. 

This week I also developed a new security module called LoginTimer that helps to prevent timing attacks in ProcessWire. Admittedly, I started this more for fun than anything, as I don't think timing attacks are a common problem in ProcessWire. But the more I got into it, the more I became aware of the potential dangers of timing attacks (particularly outside of the ProcessWire world). In any case, I now view it as an important security consideration and definitely thought we should have a module for it. Maybe someday we'll have it in the core too. The module is now available in the modules directory and on GitHub, and I wrote up a blog post to accompany the module and that is located here:
