    I'm experiencing the same problem, and am wondering if the plugin is being compromised from an outside source, or if it's simply an issue with the plugin itself.

    I have precisely the same issue. I am wondering if there is another security plugin conflict, as Better WP Security uses links with a " ? " like this:

    http://YOURSITE/wp-admin/admin.php?page=better_wp_security

    ... and my site has permalinks turned ON, so I'm wondering if there is some kind of conflict.

    Kind of ridiculous --- going to go back to WEP Security.

    OK, the issue for me is a conflict with WordPress Firewall. I whitelisted the page/action variables for WP Better Security, and now we have lift-off.

    Curious if I need WP Firewall also running if WP Better Security effectively does same with its "filter out suspicious queries" option. WP Firewall allows me to more precisely set rules and filters, however.

    I'm a novice coder. Can you explain exactly what you did to whitelist the page/action variables?

    I see the whitelist box in WP Better Security, I just don't know what to put in there?

    I'm using WordPress Firewall, too.

    ^^^ Make sure you have email notifications turned on in WP Firewall. Then click on all the WP Better Security links, one after the other, for every single option page. Then check your email; in a few minutes you'll get WP Firewall exception notifications. At the bottom of each email will be a link to whitelist the page. Do so for each page/notification... that's the easiest way. Voila!
