    I'm wondering what type of Wordpress Security plugins you BHW pros use to keep your sites secure.
    I've had several of my sites hacked and somehow used to spam email which has caused my domains to be blacklisted by some email centers, so I really need to learn how to lock down my sites security.

    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you folks.

    The less plugins you use, the better as far as security goes.

    Search for "hardening your wordpress installation" for security tips that work better than plugins.

    I only use BetterWP Security for my wordpress site. As the person above said, the less plugins, the better. Having more plugins will just slow down your blog and make it even more vulnerable to attacks.
