Hi,

Which is the best security plugin (Free or Paid) for WordPress. To avoid hack or phishing attempts. Malicious attacks, injections, corrupting scripts etc… We want to avoid all such issues in future. Please assist.

Thank you very much!

Thanks guys, I am using WordFence and Bullet Proof Security plugins now. If a site got hacked, who is responsible for it mostly likely: HOST or DEVELOPER?

Thanks.

I should probably do a post for it at some stage but here are a few things you could do

  • use SFTP not FTP
  • its a good idea NOT to use the default database prefix wp_
  • use a complex password – lastpass is awesome for this

add these in to your .htaccess , so you don’t advertise your server details

ServerSignature Off


server signature

these plugins might also help

Most FTP clients should have that as an option , personally I use FileZilla : https://filezilla-project.org/ ( its free and does everything I need from an FTP client )

- Yes I do use FileZilla too but was not able to work out with SFTP option. I will look back in. Thanks for all help :)
