Security Scanner Plugin for WordPress

August 16th, 2007 by harknell

While it’s still pretty early in it’s development, Blogsecurity.net has created a new security plugin for WordPress. This plugin works with their site to do a scan of your WordPress install to determine if there are any generic security issues present on your site. Right now it’s pretty basic, but it can quickly tell you a few common issues that might exist and direct you to how to fix them. The main page to get the plugin and read up on how it works is http://blogsecurity.net/wordpress/tools/wp-scanner/. Remember though, once you use the scanner, go back and disable the plugin you installed on your site from your WordPress Plugins admin page, you don’t want to leave it active.
