    My website was hacked and I am trying to protect better. What are some plugins that I should use to protect my website from hackers?

    please help, I have added the plugins WordPress Firewall 2 and WP Security Scan. Will those be enough to protect the website?

    It all depends on how your site was hacked. If it was through a theme that you had installed or a plugin you'd obviously need to fix that issue.

    Making sure you have a secure password for your user account and also it is a good idea to not use 'admin' as the login.

    If the hack happened through your hosting server there isn't much that you can do other than moving to another company that provides better security.

    You should check out http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress as they offer quite a bit of information.
