re: 13 WordPress Add-Ons That Mean Business
It is unfortunate that articles like this do not do more fact checking. One of the security plugin's recommended in the article (WordPress Firewall 2) has not been updated in over 2 years:
!This plugin hasn't been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress."
So if you try to apply it not only could it break your WordPress site, but it could give you a false sense of security, buggy and vulnerable code, etc.
I see this time and again, quick and dirty WordPress security recommdations that are not properly vetted.
Please do better!
