Fail2WP

Omschrijving

This WordPress plugin provides security functionality and integration with Fail2ban.

Basic security functionality includes:

  • Disabling login with username (require e-mail address)
  • Preventing user enumeration (?author=nnn)
  • Less detailed error messages on login failures
  • Minimum username length
  • Blocking specific usernames from being used to register new users
  • Requiring e-mail address matching for new user registrations
  • Warning about new user role setting
  • Blocking of portions or all of WordPress REST API
  • Disabling of RSS and Atom feeds
  • Removal of “Generator” information from HTML and feeds
  • Detection of Cloudflare IP addresses for logging of actual IP addresses

The plugin also plays nicely with Fail2ban, which is an advanced way of blocking IP addresses dynamically upon suspicious behavior.

  • This plugin may work with earlier versions of WordPress
  • This plugin has been tested with WordPress 5.5+ at the time of this writing
  • This plugin optionally makes use of mb_ PHP functions
  • This plugin may create entries in your PHP error log (if active)
