Look-See Security Scanner

Verify the integrity of a WP installation by scanning for unexpected or modified files.

Is this plugin compatible with WPMU?

The plugin is only meant to be used with single-site WordPress installations. Some features may still work under multi-site environments, however it would be safer to use some other plugin that is specifically marked WPMU-compatible instead.

Does Look-See correct any problems it finds?

No, Look-See merely points out any irregularities it finds. It is left to you to manually review any affected files to determine whether or not they pose a threat.

How long does it take for new file databases to be released?

We generally have a new file database ready to go within 24 hours of a new WordPress release (we're nerds).

Is there anything I can do to keep my server from modifying files as I upload them? That is annoying!

Take a look at your FTP program's settings and change the transfer type from ASCII (or automatic) to Binary. If your program doesn't support this, try FileZilla: http://filezilla-project.org/.

If there are no warnings, does that mean I am A-OK?

Not necessarily. There could still be backdoors elsewhere on the server. As always, we recommend you maintain best security practices and keep regular back-ups.

Will you continue supporting older versions of WordPress?

Don't count on it. As a general rule, you should always be running the latest version of WordPress anyway. Not doing so is not safe.

Can scans be automated?

Not yet, sorry. Automated scans will probably be integrated into a future release, so stay tuned!
