The Sucuri Security - Auditing, SiteCheck Malware Scanner and Hardening is a security plugin enables you to scan your WordPress site using Sucuri Site
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.)
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?
