Recently, I discussed some of the ways to protect WordPress blog . Today I want to share with you a way to hide the version of WP from intruders.

The fact that you know the version of the engine WP hacker can easily find a "key" to your treasure and manage them as you like I will not speak. Immediately proceed to the defense.

1. Functions.php file in the folder with your theme.
Add the line

  'wp_head' , 'wp_generator' ) ; ?> <? Php remove_action ('wp_head', 'wp_generator');?> 

2. Header.php file in the folder with your theme.
Remove the string

  <Meta name = "generator" content = "WordPress <? Php
 ) ; ?> " /> bloginfo ('version');?> "/> 

3. License.txt readme.html files and folder in korenvoy WordPress.
Delete these files completely.

4. Files:
in the folder / wp-includes
In each of these files, delete the line

  $wp_version ?> " --> <! - Generator = "wordpress / <? Php echo $ wp_version?>" -> 


  <Generator uri = "http://wordpress.org/" version = "<? Php
 ) ; ?> ">WordPress</generator> bloginfo ('version');?> "> WordPress </ generator> 

The file feed-rdf.php 22 line looks

 $wp_version ?> "/> <Admin: generatorAgent rdf: resource = "http://wordpress.org/?v = <? Php echo $ wp_version?>" /> 

Remove it.

By following these simple steps you will hide the version of WordPress particularly curious. I would also note that if you are using to broadcast their rss-feeds service FeedBurner, the fourth step will help you.

    What can you say about the new version 2.8 and its security? If you think so, then in principle the code is full of holes ...

    In my view, it is easier to upgrade WordPress. Of course, it will take more time, but the latest versions of WordPress is updated directly from the administration panel and takes less than a minute.
