WordPress › Wordfence Security

Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.

If protecting your WP from hackers, script kiddies, misbehaving bots, undesirable crawlers etc etc is important to you, check this plugin out, I highly recommend it!

It even identifies and automatically bans fake google bots
Excellent!! Thanks for the advice. I'll check out WordFence today. He's more or less given up trying to hack into it. Only about 5 attempts a day now.
