I professional "harden WP" and I thought to check out this plug
I ran it on a very secure set up where the wp-content directory and all the child directories were renamed and on a path under the server path. All the common vulnerabilities this this plug searches for were removed prior to execution of the plugin.
It returned about 40% of the results as false-positives. This would be very miss-leading for those who are inexperienced so I would not recommend it even for those.
I have used this plugin in my multiple sites. It works fine reporting me about the edited site files and protecting sites.
Added to my 'always install'
The vulerability scanner with tips to fix violations found gave me some great ideas to improve my site security.
Thank you very much for this good security plug-in!
Very easy to use, even for beginners.
Does this work with https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/ btw?
Worked when some of the other security plugins did not.
Does not work.
Tow of three modules do not run - vulnerability appears to run, but after the run is complete it still says 'unexecuted'.
File system check hangs, running for hours, until killed.
I raised a support report, no response after 4 days.
