Returns Too Many False Positives For the Inexprienced
By , for WP 4.2.1

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.

Nice plugin for site security

Not working
By , for WP 3.9.1

Does not work.

Simply does not work
By , for WP 3.8.1

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.
