I installed plugin_easycalccheckplus_v1.6-3.zip for my Joomla 1.6.3 with purity II template. I found this plug-in is quite useful as Joomla! does not think too much about security... Such, I made the simplified chinese language pack for version 1.6-3. and hope it can be used by more site builder.
In addition, I have some questions about this plug-in...
1. Could this plug-in support anti-spam check on login form? I noticed that Joomla! has no validation code in both front-end and back-end login pages which could be taken advantage by brute force cracking. Besides, I did find some php code about brute-force crack joomla! site... As my site will be maintained by some editors with almost 0 computer security knowledge so that it would quite possible facing weak password problem, I'm desperate to build the thickest wall as I can. As far as I know, this plug-in provide some protection about back-end login by adding tokens, however, brute-force cracking still can be done if the entrance were found by other ways (e.g. social engineering). I browsed the site and could not find wether this plug-in can be used in login form as I can not read German (It's German, right?) So, could you please let me to know whether it can support login form or not ? back-end and/or font-end?
2. If not, Could I add it manually by editing the php code of login form? And I apperciate if you could point to me where I can start with ... (I checked mod_login.php and found no clue.)
3. Could you please add some features about this login issue in the future release? Like the math equations or captcha, or at least delay the login submit for programmable time after specified number failed login. This plug-in is just that one step to become perfect anti-spam plug-in...
Anyway, this plug-in still is the best in this category. Thanks for your brilliant work!
