    Well, I know this has already been talked but it’s still an issue. You can’t afford to block google bot, even if it’s not public pages. I’m sure it does affect SEO and ranking. Too bad, I liked the plugin but I think I will have to remove it.

    Blocking access to non-public pages and PHP scripts does not affect SEO whatsoever. There is nothing to index there. Oftentimes hackers try to put malicious links to fishing websites on a victim website via hidden PHP pages and then submit URLs of those pages to Google to get them indexed. So, no excuses for scanning or probing a website for hidden, non-public, non-standard pages. WP Cerber blocks (and will do so) attempts to scan for such pages.
