It helped so much to stop xml attacks
By , for WP 4.2.2

Hello everyone

I registered to review this plugin which helped me so much minutes ago.

My server started warning of a high load. I used putty to read htop command and monitor server activity. There where several xml rpc calls.

I had a plugin to stop this in advance, but didn't work actually!

So I decided to try another one and found this plugin.

After installing this plugin my server load started to come down.

All xml rpc calls stopped and I am so thankful. I will use it on all my wordpress sites.

Thanks and good luck

Great.

Since it concerns security, I can only say great.

Does exactly what it says it does

Nice little plugin gives you simple control of XML-RPC when the botnets come knocking at your door. They still come knocking but the response time is faster with XML-RPC disabled and so the botnet attack doesn't cripple your server's performance.

Thanks!
