WordPress Security Plugin for Rackspace Cloud Sites

by

Anyone that manages a WordPress site knows that it can be a bit of a challenge to maintain site security. And, if you are managing a lot of them it can be quite an effort.

Today, I found myself cleaning out a site that had been the subject of a malicious attack. And  after securing the site, I came across a new WP plugin that is designed to scan and secure WordPress sites that are being hosted on Rackspace Cloud Sites.

The scanner automatically checks file permissions and provides a on-click correction for permissions. It also scans all of your posts for malicious code such as posts containing base64_decode (or edoced_46esab), script tags, hidden css elements or iframes.

So check out the JW Cloud Sites Scanner and send Jackson Whelan a big thanks (and donation if he gets that going)… thanks Jackson!
