File Permissions & Size Check

Description

Will add a little “x” next to any files/folders set to 777, since this is inherently insecure. Checks all recursive folders that come with a default WordPress install.

This plugin can be CPU intensive as it iterates over your whole folder/file structure to gather statistics.

Notes :

  • Checks root, wp-admin, wp-content, wp-includes and all sub folders
  • Includes your plugin and theme folders
  • Ignores images, text, CSS , and translation files
  • Will exclude the cache folders since they contain to many files to scan.
  • Requires PHP 5.1.2 or greater
  • Please run this during low traffic.

This plugin will not return accurate results under IIS or WAMP stack due to how windows handles file permissions.
