    Hi there,

    I think it would make sense if disabling xml-rpc to also get rid of the 'discovery links' which may attract the hackers to try xml-rpc on your site.

    remove_action('wp_head', 'rsd_link');
    remove_action('wp_head', 'wlwmanifest_link');

    See http://www.themelab.com/2010/07/11/remove-code-wordpress-header/

    There is this plugin, but would be better to do it in one go since it is just a line or two of code.

    Also found this for info of others doing a cleanup of the wp_head
