    I've several WP sites. Some themes and plugins I used are nulled. Does anyone know good vulnerability scanner/ malicious code checker to check and confirm security holes in my themes?
    Any good idea?

    TAC (Theme Authenticity Checker) would be the first choice for that; you can get it straight to your WP installation via the get plugins section of the dashboard.

    However, using nulled or rogue themes is only half the problem if you're also using plugins and addons via unnoficial channels.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Thanks Roamer to share this TAC plugins with us. I also was not familiar with it. Even this plugin was last updated in 2009. Is there latest updated plugin?
