WordPress backup-plugin BackWPup Pro update – Version 3.0.13 with bug fixes

With more than 800.000 downloads, worlds most famous WordPress Backup Plugin BackWPup got a bug-fix-release. Beside a buggy redirect we closed a security gap. 

The center of this release is the fix of a redirect-bug, and the remove of a security gap. It was about Cross-Site-Scripting (XSS) (“…which enables attackers to inject client-side script into web pages viewed by other users”). Our thanks go out to High-Tech Bridge for reporting this. The risk can be considered as low. But we ask everyone to update the plugin!

Version 3.0.13

  • Improved: redirect
  • Added: countries added for rackspace cloud
  • Fixed: security gap
  • Fixed: Fatal error when uninstalling on WordPress 3.4.2 and older


We work flat out on new features for BackWPup Pro, but decided to release this update to close the security gap as fast as possible.
