    Morning all.... It's almost the weekend! Yay..
    We are getting so many wordpress site hacks lately, its almost a full time job to catch them all... many of our clients use wordpress, but are not experts, so they do not always update their sites, leading to exploitable hacks..
    I was wondering if there is a web firewall of sorts that is available ?

    Or what do others use or recommend?
    I already have ispprotect, however, its not real time, so it catches after the damage is already done.
    Suggestions, comments?
    Thanks

    Additionally you should setup fail2ban for wp-login.php to eliminate Brute force attacks.
