[resolved] 404 Vulnerable String Protection? (2 posts)

    I installed brute protect and immediately saw good results and fewer attempted logins from bots. Thank you so much!

    Could a future version of BruteProtect block known bots from even viewing my site?
    Bruteprotect is keeping the bots from logging in to my site, but I still see lots of bot requests for vulnerable plugins/URLs like these:

    These requests are logged as 404 errors, because those vulnerable plugins are not installed on my site. I would feel better though, if the bots weren't even able to request the files.

    Can you help me block these attacks?

    Thanks for such a great plugin!
