Beoordelingen

does not enable xml rpc at all.

it might disable xml-rpc but it does not enable it. I have been unable to post to my wordpress, i whitelisted the ip using this plugin, it didn’t help at all

effectively stops xmlrpc brute force / dos

simply works. I don’t use jetpack and I don’t care about ping backs… but I hate the staggering amount of xmlrpc attacks I’ve been seeing the past few months. This plugin can elegantly turn the http://your.website/xmlrpc.php URL into a 403 for the would-be attacker.

Thanks!
