BotPlug is designed to help you secure and protect your WordPress website from malicious bots & crawlers and brute-force attacks which rely on making repeated requests.
Examples of this sort of attach are the infamous ‘xmlrpc’ problem – although the vulnerability in WordPress is now fixed, the repetitive and aggressive spam traffic can still cause serious problems.
By slowing down, rate-limiting, redirecting and/or blocking requests from IP Addresses which have made an excessive quantity of requests in a short period of time (or by showing them a CAPTCHA to ensure they are human), BotPlug reduces the load on your server from these unwanted visitors – and helps defend you against automated attacks which rely on making a large number of requests.
