SecurePress WordPress Plugin
Hackers will send web queries to WordPress in an attempt get WordPress to do something unexpected. For example, simply causing WordPress to error might reveal valuable information as to the type of webserver you are running your WordPress installation on. Now they have valuable information they can use to begin to exploit known vulnerabilities.
SecurePress Pro identifies these types of attacks and blocks them immediately. It then shares the IP address of the attacker with other SecurePress Pro users so that the hacker will be blocked from their blog as well. All of this is logged so that you can see the type of hacks and where they are coming from. SecurePress will also allow you to block visitors from certain countries, prevent unknown robots, and much more.
Once you begin to run SecurePress Pro on your blog, you will begin to realize that hackers are constantly up to no good on your blog. Shut them down because once they get in it can be very costly and time consuming to remove them.
At How-To-Blog.TV we mandate that all of our blogs and all of the blogs of our customers run SecurePress Pro.
