Broken with latest wp-release?
By ,

The 4.0.1 update do not work properly for me (=appear on the dash board at all). Googling this seems to be the case for a large number of people as well, Acunetix support responds but seems to be at loss, :(

This will slow down your site.
By , for WP 3.6.1

Plugin activated, DB queries jumped from 28 to 72! That's just crazy. It may help you protect your site but one thing is for sure, it is a resource hog.

Acunetix WP Security … or not ?
By , for WP 3.6

Pas de menu, pas de réglages, pas de visibilité … pas très sécure.
Evitons !
D'ailleurs je voudrais comprendre comment il est arrivé dans mes plugins, puisque je n'en n'ai jamais fait la demande !

Great, my site is much more secure now
By , for WP 3.5

I have used this for a couple of years.
It told me I had some significant security risks. I fixed them
I use it with their WebsiteDefender WordPress Security plugin and a few other security plugins and they all work together faultlessly.
It checks WordPress sites for security vulnerabilities and suggests corrective actions that are easy to follow. Obviously, to use any suggestions, you need to have some tech knowledge or be willing to learn it but their instructions are pretty straightforward.
I was staggered the first time I ran it - and I had already done a heap to secure my blog.
It is much more secure now and that has kept a lot of attacks out.
Well worth running it.
