Does what it says and this is what needed for a XMLRPC attacks.


I never installed this myself?
By , for WP 4.5.2

I'm confused here... I see this plugin I've never heard of and I never installed... and the bad thing is; I can't remove it!
If this is a security plugin it sure doesn't behave like it!
It's behaviour is a no-go for me.

Update: My hosting provider admittd they have installed this plugin. But they never notified me. So now I'm giving a 5 star rating.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 4.2.4

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.
