WordPress Plugin: WordPress Exploit Scanner

June 27, 2008 | No Comments Yet

With all the talk about WordPress security vulnerabilities, every bit of protection helps. The WordPress Exploit Scanner plugin does just what it says: it looks for any suspicious behavior in your WordPress files and database tables.

This WordPress plugin searches the files on your site for a few known strings sometimes used by hackers, and lists them with code fragments taken from the files. It also makes a few checks of the database, looking at the active_plugins blog option, the comments table, and the posts table.

It also allows the blog owner to search for whatever string they like which could come in handy when new exploit code is used in a hack.
