Sucuri SiteCheck Malware Scanner Plugin for WordPress

If you’re a WordPress user, love our free SiteCheck scanner, or already use our free SiteCheck Malware Scanner Plugin for WordPress, we have an update for you.

Sucuri Security - SiteCheck Malware Scanner

Last night we released version 1.2 of the plugin which cleans up various parts of the plugin. There’s still a lot more work to do but this was the first step towards prepping our free SiteCheck plugin for future awesomeness.

Not to be confused with the commercial Sucuri WordPress plugin offered with all of our Sucuri service plans, the Sucuri SiteCheck Malware Scanner plugin for WordPress offers SiteCheck scanning of your WordPress site, right within your WordPress dashboard. We have also rolled in the Sucuri 1-click hardening options to help improve your overall security risk posture.

Here are the changes that were made to the plugin in version 1.2:

  • Tested to WordPress 3.5
  • Cleared PHP warnings
  • Framework Refresh
  • Styling Refresh
  • Removed old malware page

Here is the full Changelog from the WordPress repository


The cool thing here is the plugin has been tested to the upcoming version of WordPress, and the plugin framework has been adapted so it’s now ready for new features and cool functionality.

Let us know what you think about it, we’d love to hear your feedback. Further, please leave us a comment here with any feature requests you have, we’d love to hear what you think would be useful in the plugin.

We hope it’s helpful, and don’t forget to go update today!
