BBQ: Block Bad Queries

The fastest firewall plugin for WordPress.

Install, activate, and done! Powerful protection from WP's fastest firewall plugin.

Block Bad Queries (BBQ) is a simple, super-fast plugin that protects your site against malicious URL requests. BBQ checks all incoming traffic and quietly blocks bad requests containing nasty stuff like eval(, base64_, and excessively long request-strings. This is a simple yet solid solution for sites that are unable to use a strong .htaccess firewall.
