    I was going to try the WordPress Exploit Scanner plugin and I started the scan but after a few seconds I got this error message:

    "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 169509802 bytes) in /home/username/domain.com/wp-content/plugins/exploit-scanner/exploit-scanner.php on line 80"

    Is there anything I can do or is this a bug?

    I'm having the same error. In the codex page for the plugin, there is this bit:

    How do I fix the out of memory error?

    Scanning your website can take quite a bit of memory. The plugin tries to allocate 128MB but sometimes that's not enough. You can allocate more by editing wp-config.php and adding the following line before the wp-settings.php require command. This code allocates 256MB of memory. Adjust the "256" figure to suit your needs.

    define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

    I tried this and get the same result. I upped the memory to 512 and got a 404 error.

    I'm using 2.8.5 btw.

    Help please ;)
