Stops abuse of your site's XML-RPC by simply removing some methods used by attackers. While you can use the rest of XML-RPC methods.
Doesn't work on 4.2.4.
For testing purposes i installed 2 plugins to compare :
1. Disable XML-RPC Pingback from Samuel Aguilera
2. Disable XML-RPC from Philipp Erb
When 1 is activated, i am still able to post articles from 3 different applications.
When 2 is activated, i get following message in all 3rd party applications :
"XML-RPC services are disabled on this site"
Samuel, instead of insulting people you should update you plugin.
Takes care of the pingback XML-RPC vulnerability issues as described. Thanks!
It does exactly what it sais.
Simple, effektive and easy to use for a average admin like me. Activate it and you have done something to protect your wordpress installation.
Simply what I wanted :)
Thank you for providing a targeted solution to the issue noted here: http://blog.sucuri.net/2014/03/more-than-162000-wordpress-sites-used-for-distributed-denial-of-service-attack.html
