Improve your WordPress Security in Under 1 Minute

There is a great plugin called WP Security Scan that will check several possible security issues on your WordPress installation, automatically fix some, and let you fix others. After installation there will be a new link in the wp-admin sidebar called Security. Click that and you’ll get your recommendations.

Right now WP Security Scan covers:

-passwords
-file permissions
-database security
-version hiding
-WordPress admin protection/security

Future releases will also address:

*one-click change file/folder permissions
*test for XSS vulnerabilities
*intrusion detection/prevention
*lock out/log incorrect login attempts
*user enumeration protection
*.htaccess verification
*doc links
