    Will using two different security plugins cause any clashes?
    For example I like the sound of both "6scan-protection" and "ultimate-security-checker", and they both work on WP 3.4.1 so are up to date.
    They are both rated as 4 out of 5 by

    Does anyone have a comparison for me of these two plugins?
    I like something that runs manually and gives me information in plain English not code. Not that experienced.

  2. It seems like the both do pretty much the same thing which is scan for vulnerabilities.

    I'm not familiar enough with either to give a recommendation but the metrics should be a good guideline. Look at the volume of support questions and if they are being resolved as well as ratings and number of downloads.

    And who is eukhost?

    There are several security plugins listed that have been widely adopted.

    WP Security Scan is one I use.
