    Hi,

    I was wondering is there a simple, user friendly and most importantly effective security plugin for wordpress blogs that stops the hackers to the maximum extent as possible.

    I have seen and read about a few plugins
    bulletproof,
    all in one security and
    wp security

    but was wondering which one would suit the most for my blog, just for the reference my blog is chiprip.com

    Also, is it really necessary to use a security plugin or change any core files to be more secure. Or wordpress is already too much secure to fight hackers or any other thing

    Core files do not have to be changed, but even WordPress suggests this:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress

    BulletProof Security does a great job of guarding the overall installation (via htaccess), and Wordfence Security does a great job of keeping order at the door and on the inside along with checking *all* files for modifications.

    So are you suggesting that I should install both or should I choose one of them..

    And also there is this Better WP security, but it says that they dont follow up regualar support forum, instead we can choose the premium feature to buy tickets for support.

    I use both since each does things the other does not do. BPS hardens htaccess and WF deals with actual traffic and checks files. I have heard there are plugins that can do both things, but I have no actual experience with any others...and you make a great point about support! BPS has some of the best support anywhere, and the author of WF is also very active in support.
