The Whois Lookup for this version works whereas it did not work for the previous version I had installed. One suggestion: make a "Block IP Address" button available to block the IP address after using the Whois Lookup feature directly from that page that would add it to the IP blacklist.
This is an excellent plug-in and I have used it with great success to prevent malicious attacks. It is not 100% foolproof but nothing is.
It would be useful to have an On/Off button where you can just select the level of Protection 'Basic,Intermediate,Advanced' and the plugin would then allow all of the measures. Instead of having to play about with the settings just to get a good protection level.
It's a good plugin with advanced features to control and neutralize major threats. Well explained and documented. Backup your .htaccess file before installing and activating this plugin it will not interrupt your website normal function but it's good to have a backup.
I cannot logged in my web site. this security system thounght that I am a threat :)
system is difficult to control for all part. maybe, level system goog idea.
It's just awesome security plugin. Very simple to understand the feature. Some security plugins conflict with site, but it works well here without conflict.
Need a better uninstalling and a better interface. Too much options and need to be more cleaning with a lot of functions.
Well it is awesome
But checking all your security settings ON caused a complete shutdown first.
Too secure ;-)
Very easy to use and powerful!
It's not difficult to configure for a non-dev. It seems it gets the job done very well. Thank you.
Pretty good plugin. Just needs some improvement I really wish these security plugin authors would look at other security plugins and add features from them... I've had to double install security plugins for the last 5 years. Why not just give us one "ALL IN ONE SECURITY" plugin we can use??? huh
Missing some things that other plugins do like removing Author pages (These show your actual login name despite what you set in user profile and try to hide, this plugin asks you to set a different name though... pointless feature)
So lets say you install WordPress with username "BobGeldof" then go to profile and set your alias to be "Bobby" or "Admin", posts written by you will have the tag authored by "Admin". However mousing over the "Admin" link you can see author page is "yoursite/BobGeldof/" which is a pretty big security issue. It's much better to actually hide your login name by removing author pages.
There were some other things I noticed like the RSD and WLW and shortlinks and feed links in header which are all totally useless. WordPress versioning, etcetera etcetera. A few other issues I can't recall off the top of my head that need implementing.
