    Hello Team,

    We are using Better WP Security plugin 3.5.5 on our website.

    We know that the plugin modifies .htaccess file but it added the following code twice in the file which made the site down.

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^EmailCollector [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^EmailSiphon [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^EmailWolf [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Express\ WebPictures [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^ExtractorPro [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^EyeNetIE [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^FlashGet [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^GetRight [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^GetWeb! [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Go!Zilla [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Go-Ahead-Got-It [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^GrabNet [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Grafula [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} GT::WWW [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} heritrix [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^HMView [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} HTTP::Lite [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} HTTrack [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ia_archiver [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} IDBot [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} id-search [NC,OR]0.0/22

    We have removed this code to make the site working.

    We are using this plugin on our many other websites also, so we do not want this should happen with any of the site.

    Please let us know what made the plugin to add the code twice?

    Regards,
    Kalpna
