How to secure your wordpress blog?

Dear friends,

I’ve faced problems in few of clients WordPress blogs. Their WordPress blog was under attacked and hacked by some hackers. I analyzed and realized that this is not hacking, just some security holes were there and hackers were exploiting them. I installed few plugins to secure those blogs. Now blogs are 100% Okay and working fine..

I am going to mention these plugins here. I recommend you to use these plugins to secure your blogs.

WP Security Scan (Much much better plugin, It just shows security status, You can change things after instructions by this plugins).

Hide Login (You can change your default /wp-admin path for admin logins, It is much necessary to hide your login path).

BulletProof Security (This plugin secures folders, files and wordpress installation using .htaccess settings, It also stops hackers).

TimThumb Vulnerability Scanner (Many plugins and WordPress Themes use this php small utility (TimThumb) to resize and crop images. The old version of this utility has security whole in it. This plugin scans old version of TimThumb and replace them with new version, much needed to stop hackers).

 Wordfence Security (This plugin is a great plugin ever, It has functionality like Firewall, If somebody is trying to access your username with failed attempts, it can block their IP address and much much more functionality).

I hope these plugins will help you.
