Excellent job, and great information on your website on how to protect WordPress from malicious attacks.
I never realised how many bots there are out there, continually scanning for out-of-date plugins & themes, ferreting out vulnerabilities 24/7.
I was looking for a better security plugin and I have chosen Wordfence.
I particularly love the ability to throttle bots and crawlers, and too many 404 hits. I was having terrible over-usage of shared server resources because of those things, and this capability, in addition to flat out country blocking, has solved that problem.
Strongly recommended, especially for high traffic sites.
Already the free version of this plugin takes you a long way towards securing your sites. Not only will it allow you to manually scan most of the installed files, but you will get email notifications of things like outdated plugins, admin logins, attempts to break in to your site, etc.
If you want to have a sense of security, this is a must have plugin.
This is a must have plugin for your wordpress site. I wish I had learned about it sooner.
I host five sites, including a couple of non-profits I was donating space for. One of the non-profits got sloppy with security and from there all other sites were affected. Wordfence helped me get the sites clean again to submit for whitelisting. Huzzah!
The only downside is the load it puts on the server. Recommend to run the scan at night!
Keep up the good work and thanks for keeping the core features free.
I've used the free version for numerous websites and have recommended that my clients buy the paid version for piece of mind. The ability to block nuisance IPs and limiting access attempts is great. Thank you for creating this plugin and mitigating problems.
Great plugins. Need a little fiddling to get it worked on LiteSpeed or Open LiteSpeed but this is documented and warned properly.
