8:43 PMSome Excellent Wordpress Security Plugins To Secure Your Blog
of bloggers and website administrators fail to recognize the importance
of securing their site. Some Gurus couldn’t imagine running a site that brought
in some decent money a month and not taking a few minutes to secure it.
From attacks like the hidden iFrame injection (Trojan virus) or even
someone hacking the password and attempting to blackmail you, the work
needed to fix these problems is much greater than the effort it takes
to make sure it doesn’t happen to you.
TAC (Theme Authenticity Checker)Download
TAC stands for Theme Authenticity Checker. Currently, TAC searches the source files of every installed theme for signs of malicious code. If such code is found, TAC displays the path to the theme file, the line number, and a small snippet of the suspect code. As of v1.3 TAC also searches for and displays static links.
Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not and lets you review the spam it catches under your blog's "Comments" admin screen.
Chap Secure LoginDownload
Whenever you try to login into your website, you can use this plugin to trasmit your password encrypted. The encryption process is done by the Chap protocol; this is particularly useful when you can't use ssl or other kinds of secure protocols. By activating the ChapSecureLogin plugin, the only information transmitted unencrypted is the username; password is hided with a random number (nonce) generated by the session - and opportunely transformed by the md5 algorithm.
This plugin protects registration, login and comment forms from spambots by adding two extra fields hidden by CSS. This approach gave me 100% anti-spam protection on one of my sites.
NoSpamNX automaticly adds additional formfields to your comment form, invisible to the users. If a spambot fills these fields blindly (which 99.9% of all spambots do), the comment will not be saved. You can decide if you want to block these spambots, mark them as spam or put them in moderation queue. Furthermore, you can put common spam-phrases on a blacklist.
