    Many of you already know this I am sure but I still want to warn the ones who don't know about it. For the past year I have been getting very nice premium wordpress plugins for free (the ones that don't require a registration code). All of you please be sure to protect your /wp-content/plugins folder but that is not always good enough, for instance I found wp robot by typing "wp-content/plugins/wprobot" in google. I guess the guy with wp robot had the plugins folder protected because it didn't show up in the search engine, but when i was more specific it showed up, so be sure to protect all plugin folders not only the main folder. Make the area forbidden in case anyone starts digging through your blog and be sure to hide it using a robots.txt file too.

    i was use that technique before. it's easy to find any premium plugin. but with one condition, hope in some blog hosting place, there are any idiot webmaster that save the copy on their blog host. sometimes i found the file on the uploads folder. here's that always i'm doing if i want any file:
    type "?intitle:index.of? wp-content/plugins wprobot .zip"
    or "?intitle:index.of? wprobot (or anyfiles) .zip"
    or "rapidshare.com wprobot.zip"
