CopySafe Web Plugins To Support The Forthcoming Windows 8.1
Sept 10, 2013 – A new version of the CopySafe Web browser plugins for
Internet Explorer and Mozilla web browsers has been released and are now
available for download.
This release is well ahead of the Windows 8.1 version scheduled for release in
November. However some users may already be using the beta version.
What's New In CopySafe Web version 188.8.131.52
The first thing to note is the version number increase and all web sites need to
update their CSI files to ensure that their visitors get to download and install
this new version.
As well as support for Windows 8.1, this version also includes a revised
CopySafe Runtime and plugin functions to prevent users from exploiting protected
web pages by disabling the service. The new Runtime periodically checks that the
service is running and if not found, it will close the application that is using
it, thus closing any protected windows to prevent them from being captured.

Updating WordPress and Other CMS Modules
Unless a CMS has been upgraded the only changes required to update your module
for these new browser plugins is the CSI file (in some distributions it will be
a .js file). As the CSI files differ between module type, the best method for
updating will be a file comparison between the CSI in your module set and the
CSI in the download above. It should only be the version number that changes, ie:
from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11
