Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » DO NOT RUN THE UPDATE!!! Broke all my sites

  • The Better WP Security version was AWESOME!! missing a tiny feature or two.

    The iThemes is TOTALLY CRAP!
    It has destroyed EVERY site that was updated on multiple servers.

    ** WARNING **
    DO NOT RUN THE UPDATE …or accept your risk.

    I had to rename the plugin folder to get each blog working again.
    …not to mention, after running the update, it causes FireFox to consume all my system resources, forcing me to complete reboot my PC just to get it usable again.

    Yep, same thing happened to me 🙁

    Uninstalled on all my sites now.

    Hi mlewitz and Phil C,

    We apologize for the issues and the frustration this has caused you. Here at iThemes we value your feedback and are working hard to fix these pervading issues.

    First, please make sure to keep the plugin as up to date as possible (currently v4.0.17). Our developers are pushing regular updates to take care of bugs and have already resolved a great number of issues, and a newer version may fix the problem you are experiencing.

    If this does not work or you are experiencing a new issue, please fill out an iThemes Security Bug Report with as many relevant details as possible, so our developers can better address the issue.

    We greatly appreciate your feedback and your patience in helping us resolve these issues as quickly and efficiently as possible.


    The problem is still apparent on my sites.
    You should release an update that removes the entries from the DB so it will allow a re-write so the custom login slug can work
