Built-In Security Features

  1. Daniel Craig Jallits


    Let's face it WordPress is by far one of the most popular and successful Open Source projects to date. It boasts users from every walk of life, in various different capacities. It is for these reasons that WordPress has of late become the target to an ever increasing rate of various malicious attacks and what not.

    My suggestion is that instead of pleading with users to ensure their sites are secure (well at least as secure as we can make them) we be proactive and give them the tools to do so right out of the box per say.

    This can either be accomplished by distributing the plugin(s) along with the core, much like Akismet is done, or more preferably build the functionality directly into the core.

    What type of functionality do you have in mind over what WordPress already does?

    Maybe it is time to include all or parts of WP Security Scan, WordPress Exploit Scanner, and the WordPress File Monitor plug-ins as part of the core. Another option would be to distribute these plug-ins with the core, much like Akismet or Hello Dolly are done.
