As many of you know DNN version 9 was released on December 8th,2016 and the host and admin control panel have quite a different look and feel.  This new control bar is called the Persona Bar, and contains all of the features that you had in the the CONTROLBAR or RIBBONBAR.  For your reference DNN Corp has a good article mapping where items were located in the old toolbar to the new toolbar.

DNN Security Advisory : Rogue Host Accounts
Posted by DNN4Less Support Engineer Jessie on 26 May 2016 02:29 PM

DNN Security Advisory: Rogue Host Accounts

It has come to our attention that a vulnerability recognized by DNN Software in early 2015 has resurfaced and can be exploited again by a new mechanism. This will require action to be taken by DNN administrators to prevent unauthorized access to your DNN site.  Click here to view the DNN Software article from 2015.

The vulnerability can allow an attacker to:

> Create a New Host Account

> Update Host records and tables

> Clear SMTP Settings

> Upgrade or alter installed modules


Who is Affected?

Any DNN site that is running any version for DNN Platform or Evoq.


What can I do to prevent this from happening to my DNN site?

1. To prevent this vulnerability from being exploited on your DNN installation delete the following 11 files:













2. Go to Host > Host Settings > Other Settings under Allowable File Extensions > Ensure that the .aspx extension is Not uploadable.

3. Reveiw your superusers at Host > SuperUser Account and remove any unauthorized users.

4. Search the root and subfolders for any suspicious .aspx or .php files.  Make sure not to delete any files that may be required for DNN to run properly.


I host my site with DNN4Less, do I need to worry about anything?

Our dedicated technicians have gone through all DNN Installations that we host and have ensured the 6 files have been deleted from the /Install folder which should prevent the sites from being exploited.  We recommend checking steps 2-4 on your installations.


DNN Corp has released Evoq 8.4.2 and DNN Platform 8.0.3 to further mitigate the issue.  Please contact support at if you would like your site upgraded to the latest version.


Thank You
