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!
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?
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.
This is a Great Plugin, even if it had a fee, but its FREE, which makes it better, yet. Having the ability to get a FREE Sucuri Scan is awesome. Oh and after scanning my website, I immediate wrote my own little article, about it, at: [ link redacted, please do not post links in the reviews section ] - yes, I pitched your paid services, too ;-)
I like this plugin because it runs several checking with different antiviruses to make sure about the files on server.
This Sucuri Security - SiteCheck Malware Scanner plugin helps make it easy to add some php protection, and it has a couple on nice one-click buttons for using "the official WordPress Secret-Key API Generator" and to reset one or more user passwords whenever doing so might seem like a good idea.
it just scanner ... nothing else ...
No more hacking
I've had some run ins with spam and malware on my old site. This plugin seems to do the trick and its super easy to use!
My site was infected by malware 6 months ago. The Sucuri plugin didn't even detect it; its only contribution was to tell me I was blacklisted (which I knew already because of an email from Google Webmaster Tools.) But Wordfence told me exactly what was going on, and where.
Removed the spyware and was able to get off Google blacklist within 48 hours.
Yet 6 months later, this plugin still shows me on the Google blacklist. (And I promise you: it just ain't on there.)
The same has since held true for several of my sites. Sucuri doesn't detect the attack shell at ALL, and then keeps telling me I'm on a blacklist, long after the fact.
I will say I like the "one-click hardening" (assuming it's doing something), but thanks to plugins like Better WP Security and Wordfence, I haven't gotten hacked since.
Bottom line: This may be a great plugin, and some people seem to love it, but as far as I can tell this is 90% an ad for Sucuri's malware removal service, and otherwise a lackluster plugin at best.
If it can't detect the presence of an attack shell on a WP platform, then uh ... what exactly is it?
(To clarify, it HAS successfully detected them AFTER a Google blacklist, but Wordfence has found the SAME shell BEFORE a blacklist; leading me to believe Sucuri may rely on a blacklist report from Google to generate its "results," which isn't the same as what Wordfence is doing: keeping me off the blacklist in the first place.)
Apologies if I'm wrong.
