Coral 1.0.x will be out in March!

I just wanted to pop in and let you know that my latest and greatest app: Coral, is set to be relased on CodeCanyon in March! I might even have it done sooner! If you've been struggling to find and correct all the loopholes in other people's plugins or code, then search no further! Coral is a fully automated PHP security intrusion detection and prevention system that can find and actively disable intruder code. It doesn't matter what you're scanning, whether you use Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, or just some code you bought on CodeCanyon, Coral will monitor each and every file, line by line, as often as you want, looking for holes and security threats.

The cool thing is that you don't have to be a security guru to perform comprehensive server scans for malicious code. Coral is based on an idea loosely tied to Tripwire, that scans your site in it's "safe state" and then uses that as a stepping stone to look for additions, changes, modifications, injections etc. Not only will it find them, it will disable them! You can safely restore a file to it's original snapshot, at the press of a button. I really tried to focus on the design aspects of this script and I think I have done my best to make sure that everything is as intuitive as it can be. There is tremendous power at your fingertips. By default Coral comes with four unique scan routines.

You can do a quick scan which monitors for changes in individual file change and modified server times and quickly find dangerous executable file formats. Or if you want to do some digging, there is a comprehensive scan which does everything the quick scan does but also goes line by line looking for common injection code patterns and inventories differences from the safe state snapshot. If that's too much, and the quick scan is not enough, you can do a comprehensive scan of only server-side scripts such as PHP, Python, Ruby and more.

Definitions and malicious code pattern scans are modular and will be distributed to all CodeCanyon license holders for free for the duration of the product's lifetime! Forget SaaS and get something you can install on your server and customize the way you want. Coral is built on open-source libraries and powered by the Slim 3 PHP framework. Coral requires PHP version 7 or above. I look forward to pushing this neat little project out into the universe. Let me know if you have ideas or feature requests, by emailing from my contact page!
