A new WordPress plugin from 6Scan is designed to help users find and manage Web site vulnerabilities.

"6Scan finds vulnerabilities on your WordPress website for free, and plugs them automatically for a small monthly charge," writes ITworld's Angela West. "The free version of 6Scan tells you what's wrong with your website and sends you an email notification when a problem with the site that could give a hacker access is discovered."

"For $10 a month, the Fortress plan includes a Bodyguard feature that auto-fixes any found vulnerabilities," West writes. "You also get premium email support and SMS notifications of site issues, in addition to the email you'll already have from the free version."
