Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
Once I installed wordfence on my sites, all of them were compromised. WordFence opens a floodgate of hackers, and open doors. If you have given this plugin a good review, it is quite possible that you do not know nothing about wordpress or site security. We lost 3 sites so far over this plugin. Specifically pointed out by our hosting companies and other advanced webdevelopers far and beyond wordpress developmental status has pointed out that this plugin causes problems. You will instantly get hacked, it brings in scripts. Stay clear away from this plugin as we will be sharing a magazine article soon to go live about this issue with this plugin. Let Alone that WordFence does not reply to the on going issues that they are aware of, and are avoiding. See forums within wordfence own site by customers of wordfence questioning about fixes to this problem that have repeatedly been avoided.
This one is a third party keyboard script, which as I have read its code contains no malware whatsoever.
Feel free to read the code yourself here:
Your software cause people to think I have malware in mine, hence the rating, would appreciate it that you fix it and issue some sort of fix up the mess notice.
You are smart enough to create a gazillion tables in the database, but you leave them untouched after an uninstall? What kind of job is this? The tour is a big long sales pitch, don't bother! And it does nothing about any premium etc. themes or plugins that you get from anywhere else other than WordPress theme repository.
Do not believe in the fake/paid 5 star one-liner reviews. Read a real review of this plugin here:
I have installed the plugin and it works fine. Actually I was happy for it the first day. Easy to learn, manage and use, but then came the bad surprise....
I am the owner and editor in chief of the international, independent, daily online newspaper nsnbc international at http://www.nsnbc.me
Today, 04.04.2013, I suddenly received reports about each and every URL I have linked to, belonging to a high profile, internationally recognized independent media called Voltairenet.
To make matters worse, the "fault - malware - etc -" was reported as "CRITICAL" a big red cross.
The Real Problem ?...... is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of the URLs, other than that either WordPress, the Pluginprovider, or GOOGLE, have decided to blacklist a media which is critical about illegal wars of aggression, also when the war crimes are being committed by NATO.
Conclusion: In its current version the plugin facilitates the censorship of independent media,- and it is doing so either directly, or indirectly, because its functions rely on data from a data provider who is involved in unethical censorship practices.
When will our newspaper on the blacklist, our yours, and can I endorse a plugin that facilitates unethical censorship practices ? I am waiting to hear for a response from the developer - otherwise, I think the plugin will be removed, and we independent media have something to write about.
I tried it but it made my site load to slow. Deactivated the plugin and site loaded ok again.
I've tried it a few times to make sure, but it's definitely this plugin that slowed up my site.
Decided it's not for me and have removed it.
This plugin after installation brought my to a crawl and finally made it crash. Not impressed.
It make database 10 times more heavier, I don't know what the hell this plugin stored in my DB!
