Well, I've just tried it out and I think it's great! The scan gave me exactly what I excected (themefile changed and plugin files changed all by me, especially because the plugin file hasn't been maintained wasn't functioning properly anymore with the original version).
The only I don't have experience with yet, is the login, but I hope it will be very effective. Especially since there have been numorous illegal login attempts the last couple of weeks (thanks for Limit Login attempts!).
Anyway, a great plugin to use!
I get some false positives, but a great plugin to review possibly infected sites. Also great peace of mind.
Great to have wordfence in my corner. Easy to use. well-explained.
I am using the premium version of WordFence on all of the primary WordPress sites I oversee at work and the free version on some personal sites. Both versions do an excellent job of keeping my sites secure and notifying me of updates. The Live Traffic view gives me a list of everyone who is accessing my sites and where they're coming from -- people, bots, and potential hackers, while the Logins/Logouts tab shows me the IP addresses of hacker bots trying to log in under the (deleted) Admin username. The Advanced Blocking allows me to control the notifications I receive and the IP address ranges I want block.
If you're responsible for security on a WordPress site, this is the plugin you're looking for.
This plugin solved my problem with heard attack on all my sites. Was modified core of WP. WF finded all modifications and I restored files in one click. I use free version.
I liked the interface and options of this plugin and am using it on my website. It will be most helpful during problem times when your site is hacked or defaced.
Had my site have some earnig potential I would have upgraded to the paid version.
It is very good.
It has saved one of my sites from hackers twice today alone. It's easy to install, set up and run. Thanks guys.
Takes a great worry off one's mind having this thing working in the background. Also, the Falcon engine for speeding the page loads beat anything I've used before. 5 stars easy.
So cool to have emails each time there is abnormal activity on a blog. As WP is always attacked, it's easier to sleep :)
