Secured the site fine
By , for WP 4.1.1

Already installed this a year ago, after testing some other security plugins.
Did the job fine without errors (especially the database changes required a full backup of your site. Any security plugin installation does, right?)

Other plugins might have a few extra features. But I have the feeling, the lock downs here and made by professionals (see their site) and have kept my site safe (which is a wonder these days)

Works as described

Зловредный плагин
By , for WP 4.1.1

Какое-то время все было нормально, и вдруг сайт стал тупить. Другой плагин-сканер выявил причину. На 98% аж затуплял. Нужно забанить плагин и разработчика!!!!!!!!!!!
Что именно делает плагин в этот момент я не разбирался, мне это не нужно, и времени небыло. Но думаю хорошего он точно ничего не делает!

This plugin is one of the best

I'm just cleaning up a client's site - With. This. Plugin. Active.
By , for WP 4.0.1

Okay - it is minor, near as I can figure - some script kiddie (I assume) added a blob of Base 64 to the top of every file named functions.php in the Themes directory.

But, kids,* my client here is a fighter pilot. He's in superb shape, he's had special combat training and I-don't-know-what-all.

*Yes, kids. I'm probably old enough to be your mother. Or, at least, your mother-in-law.

simple, fast and secure!

This plugin is one of the best. I read users lost their site, it is not plugin fault, it is database access rights.In wp-config.php set user to root and then in wordpress change database prefix, after that change back to limited access user for database, because this plugin change wp-config.php attribute to new databse prefix and then cant change database prefix in mysql(lack of user rights)... and worpress search with new database prefix name and cant find tables in database is the unchanged tables prefix...
When someone lost his site , in phpmyadmin see database prefix and manual change in wp-config.php database prefix to old one. And works again all. :)
