Find Hackers on your site

Ok not really, but kind of close. I installed a new plugin called WordPress Exploit Scanner. The plugin will search your database and files to look for common code used by hackers.

“Scans your WordPress site for possible exploits By Donncha O Caoimh.”

I scanned my blog using the new plugin and the only files that came back as a possible threats, wear the ones used by the actual plugin. Kind of funny, but to be fair the plugin does state the following:

Don’t worry if ‘/wp-content/plugins/exploit-scanner/exploit-scanner.php’ is listed above. That’s a good sign because this script obviously has all the text to search for and it’s working properly!

It’s a very nice tool to have.
