Speckyboy has created a list of the top 10 security plugins to use with WordPress. The plugins range from AskApache Password Protect to WP Security scan. When asked about security at WordCamp Dallas, Matt Mullenweg responded by saying “The best thing you could do to make sure your blog is secure is to stay up to date with the latest stable versions of WordPress.” Using strong passwords for your administrator account along with not using the default admin account that is created during a WordPress install are also good practices.

For more information in regards to securing your WordPress installation, be sure to check out the Hardening WordPress article on the Codex.

    Set SECRET_KEY in wp-config.php

    Fill it with a long string (60 characters or so is good) of random gibberish.

    Great info., I always keep versions up to date, but don’t do other things I know I should. I think these plugins are a good place to start.

    Thanks

    Thank you for bringing up security issues. It is always one of those things I take for granted. But, you have done a wonderful job of creating lists and guidelines to follow. There is no ecuse for e not to “get her done” now. Thanks
