Scans your WordPress installation for security vulnerabilities.
Wiped my entire site! Content and all!
Totally annoyed and irritated, 2 years of blogging and Google rankings gone with it!
Crap Plug in! SHOULD BE BANNED!
Please refer to this article for more information on how to create an .htaccess file.
The link being: http://www.acunetix.com/blog/web-security-zone/articles/what-is-an-htaccess-file/ , which is 404.
Other pieces of Descriptions: "This Plugin", which Plugin? No Link...
Interesting way to learn about main WP security issues, but other than that, no, sorry - feels a bit faulty.
Disable > Remove, I'm afraid to say.

I've used this plugin for a while and haven't experienced the issues other reviewers have mentioned.
I have tested site speed with it installed and active and got a 90% speed grade and an 84% YSlow grade. Uninstalled it, deleted cache, tried again. Got no difference results.
For me it has gave me a bit of piece of a mind as the changes it recommended when I first installed it made sense. And it has had no negative impact on other areas of my site.
So I would recommend it.
The weird thing is that they created two plugins: Acunetix WP Security, and Actunetix Secure WordPress (yes, like the "Judeans People Front" and the People's Front of Judea, from Brian's Life).
And also it not consistent: in one options page it recommends me to change 644 permissions from settings.php to a lower value, while in other page, it changes that settings to 644 to the same file. And it says that you have a lot of problems, but doesn't fix most of them automatically. So it's confusing, and complex to understand and use. Previous versions were much better :(
Seems to work just fine - never had any issues. And it's free. Thank you Acunetix!
Just what my title says. :)
Slowed my site to a crawl. Slow loading, unable to login. Removed plugin, site is working normally again.
