Apocalypse Meow

A simple, light-weight collection of tools to help protect wp-admin, including password strength requirements and brute-force log-in prevention.

Apocalypse Meow provides several tools to help you lock down the wp-admin area:

  • Brute-force log-in protection: temporarily disable and replace the log-in form after a specified number of failures are detected.
  • Specify minimum password requirements for users to ensure nobody chooses something stupid like "password123". :)
  • See a complete history of log-in attempts, successes, and bans.
  • Disable the "generator" meta tag, which betrays which version of WordPress you are running (thereby making exploits more easily targetted).
  • Disable adjacent post meta tags.
  • Disable XML-RPC.
  • Delete readme.html file.
  • Rename the default "admin" user.
  • Disable the theme/plugin editor.
  • One-click reset all user passwords.
  • Disable user enumeration attempts.
  • Email alert after login from new location.
