Disable XML-RPC Pingback

Descrizione

Stops abuse of your site’s XML-RPC by simply removing some methods used by attackers. While you can use the rest of XML-RPC methods.

This is more friendly than disabling totally XML-RPC, that it’s needed by some plugins and apps (I.e. Mobile apps or some Jetpack’s modules).

Funzionalità

Removes the following methods from XML-RPC interface.

  • pingback.ping
  • pingback.extensions.getPingbacks

Recensioni

I never installed this myself?

I’m confused here… I see this plugin I’ve never heard of and I never installed… and the bad thing is; I can’t remove it!
If this is a security plugin it sure doesn’t behave like it!
It’s behaviour is a no-go for me.

Update: My hosting provider admittd they have installed this plugin. But they never notified me. So now I’m giving a 5 star rating.
