Block Bad Queries

Hey, you can never have too much in the way of security for your WordPress-powered site. Interested in yet another great plugin that can help you thwart the unwanted advances of spammers and hackers? Well, let me introduce you to Block Bad Queries plugin

BBQ (love that acronym!) is a simple and straightforward plugin that helps protect you against malicious URL requests. How it does this is by checking all incoming traffic and blocks what it deems to be as bad requests containing nasty site-damaging stuff like eval(, base64_, and excessively long request strings, which are commonly used by hackers. One technique used by hackers is to try and embed malicious code in requests to your website. This plugin will “sniff” these request out and block them. Simple as that!

  • Plug-n-play functionality
  • No configuration required
  • Born of simplicity, no frills
  • Blocks a wide range of malicious requests
  • Based on the 5G/6G Blacklist
  • Scans all incoming traffic and blocks bad requests
  • Works silently behind the scenes to protect your site
  • New! Customize blocked strings via Whitelist/Blacklist plugins
