    What do you think of Limit Login Attempts plugin? I’ve hear Word Fence is very good too.

    It seams like the plugins are why I keep getting hacked. A vulnerable plugin let someone into my site in the first place.

    I downloaded Anti-Malware & Brute-Force Security by ELI on your recommendation, and also based on other reviews that I saw online. I had an extremely invasive php malware infection in ALL of my websites, in wp files, and even throughout theme files. A few other plugins I tried did not work, or messed something up, or were confusing. Eli’s plugin was amazing, and I would highly recommend it. It cleared all of my sites.

    It is important that folks realize that hacker payloads will usually contain hidden hacker backdoor files that are not going to be detectable by any of these plugins. So what will happen is the obvious hacked stuff will be found and cleaned by these plugins, but the hack will just happen again since the hidden hacker backdoor files were not detected/found. If you look at the current Wordfence support forum you will see several current threads where this is happening. It is better to know the truth about what you are dealing with to take care of it 100% vs trying band-aids that are not really going to fix the hack problem.

    @Jean – “For extra security…” is quite an understatement for current versions of BPS Pro, but back in 2013 BPS Pro was not nearly as powerful as it is now. 😉 BPS Pro currently has a perfect track record. Yes, that means that no one with BPS Pro installed has had their website hacked.

    You wouldn’t need to mess with difficult and unreliable recovery if you’d make backups often enough.

    Look up at Web Support Revolution. My backups are created few times a day and all changes are monitored.

    When I had problems with repeatable hacks, it was just few clicks to restore the good version.

    But after I’ve also set their firewall – backups are needed only for cases when I brake something by myself.

    Best way to prevent: change passwords frequently, harden plugins, upgrade your hosting or an easier solution is to use a Malware find, fix & prevent solution. I use http://www.siteguard.com and they’ve been rock solid. I run across all my client sites.
