Among the many Plugins available for protecting your Wordpress site, one of the highest rated is Security Ninja Lite. In this tutorial we will show you how to install the Security Ninja Lite plugin in Wordpress, then we will show you how to analyze your website with it.

As per Security Ninja Lite you can "perform numerous security tests with one click, check your site for security vulnerabilities and holes, take preventive measures against attacks, don’t let script kiddies hack your site, and prevent 0-day exploit attacks."

This is the Lite version, the upgraded version can be purchased for additional functionality.

I recommend performing a backup of your website, before installing a Wordpress plugin.
