Usefull plugin to survey unwanted actions on my different sites.
I've been able to block somes IP from which some people tried to enter in my sites.
This plugin safe by site by blocking some IP's who attempted to login to my website.
A friend's site was compromised and every attempt I made to clean up the hack failed. Wordfence found a backdoor that I had been unable to locate, and it alerted me to the attack as soon as the backdoors were installed. Since installing wordfence, we've no longer had the problem with these attacks.
This is a great plugin, I like the idea of sending emails to me instead of me having to go to the website to check all the time!
> Easy to use, Set it and forget it
> Very protective and Does the job well
- A bit over protective, sending emails when ever you even login and that kind of thing
All up its a great plugin that makes me feel safe d:)
We use Wordfence on all of our client's websites, as it provides an easy and effective means of ensuring that their websites are safe and secure.
After having a few of my sites hacked and having to go through the nightmare of dealing with redoing them because of it, Wordfence is my #1 plugin that I add to every site.
best free WordPress security plugin u can get.
No more Chinese and Russian A-holes poking around trying to worm their way into our website! YEAH BABY!
I had a couple of sites I manage become infected with CryptoPHP malware and had no idea what was going on. On one site the sitemap.xml files had a malware link on them (I discovered this via the Sucuri plugin) and reinstalling WordPress SEO by Yoast fixed it. I had another one that had a blank page with one malware link that wiped out the website at its root domain while leaving the www version intact. After reading a blog post about this from Wordfence I suspected that the second site had also become infected through Yoast's (excellent) plugin, so I reinstalled the WordPress core and the Yoast SEO plugin, and the site was immediately restored at the root domain. I will now inform Yoast that his plugin needs an update to close this vulnerability and thank Wordfence for the information that led me to an effective resolution.
