Great Plugin, but notification e-mails problem
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin is great, however the notification emails are always sent to the default email address.

Instead we want these messages to be delivered to a separate mailbox, i.e. firewall@ourdomain.com.

It would be a great improvement if the email address could be set or overridden in the plugin settings instead of always using the default email address.

It's a good plugin, but the last update has caused trouble.
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's not allowing me to get the API it's demanding, nor giving me a good explanation of how to solve the problem.

"Sucuri: Something went wrong with an API call (register_site action): SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain"

May slow your site?
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have a suspicion that this may slow your site down. Within your /wp-content/uploads folder you'll find a sucuri folder, and within that, a blacklist and a whitelist folder. This contains a set of files showing the IP addresses of the good and the bad. I found several hundred files in the blacklist folder!

Isn't there going to be a performance hit if the plugin is reading in this folder every page load? Wouldn't it be faster to put this information into a text file or the database? (It is possible that maybe the plugin is doing a php file_exists() call for the IP address when a page request is made-- I haven't checked.)

The description say "The best part, its completely free". That's not the case. plan are as high as $300 a year and as low as $89. There are no free versions.

I would give zero stars for misleading me if I could.

Detect Modified WP Core Files
By , for WP 3.7.1

This plugin detected that one of my wp core files has been modified so that I can replace that file soon to prevent further backdoor attack. Thanks!

Great Plugin. Found Some Issues in the Newest 1.51 Version
By , for WP 3.7.1

I really like this plugin and I am using it for mainly educational purposes. I just downloaded the newest 1.5.1 version of the plugin that was updated yesterday and received errors when verifying the integrity of the core WP files. The error received is: Error retrieving the wordpress core hashes, try again.

I checked the readme file and saw that changes were made in this area. I also double checked the *integrity*.php files and they definitely changed compared to the previous version.
This functionality worked perfectly for me before the upgrade.
Anyone that had similar issues and resolved them?

Excellent plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

I have this installed on all the sites I've built on WordPress and it provides just what it says it will. It is intuitive and easy to use. I can now check the security of the sites I administer on a regular basis with one click.

The Sucuri Security - SiteCheck Malware Scanner plugin is on my list of absolutely necessary plugins. I definitely recommend that anyone with a blog/site on WordPress install this.
