N0WPScan

Description

We love security testing, we do it! We love WPSCAN, we use it! However we don’t love people abusing WPSCAN and other automated methods to try and gain access to WordPress sites through known and often easy vulnerabilities. N0WPScan is not a silver bullet, but it will stop unskilled attackers, bots and automated attacks which account for over 90% of all WordPress breaches. The other 10% can be offset with a good firewall, IDS and NSM services. Server load will also be lower and sites faster as this tool will prevent a lot of WordPress related automated testing.

[!] You can prevent most of the common attacks simply by keeping plugins, themes and the core WordPress framework updated

Benefits

* Blocks hackers from scanning your website for admin users, vulnerable themes, vulnerable plugins and exposed files
* Reduces the load on your server
* Prevents access to sensitive files
