In Prevention Mode, Live Shield monitors, logs, and blocks all identified threats. Email notifications are immediately sent if enabled.
Live Shield holistically protects your site and DOES NOT FACTOR the source of the change. For example, it will monitor and block any file intrusion or modification regardless of if it was introduced through a core or 3rd party vulnerability or a legitimate source such as FTP. Similarly, it will block ALL new grants of Superuser privileges regardless of whether it was through a SQL Injection attack or legitimately via Persona Bar. Therefore, it’s imperative to DISABLE or SWITCH to Detection Mode before installing any new extensions, upgrading your DNN or Evoq Site, or granting new Superuser privileges..
