    BBQ: Block Bad Queries

    Add to List

    Install, activate, and done!
    Powerful protection from WP’s fastest firewall plugin.

    Block Bad Queries (BBQ) is a simple, super-fast plugin that protects your site against malicious URL requests. BBQ checks all incoming traffic and quietly blocks bad requests containing nasty stuff like eval(, base64_, and excessively long request-strings. This is a simple yet solid solution for sites that are unable to use a strong .htaccess firewall.

    • Scans all types of requests: GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.
    • Works silently behind the scenes to protect your site
    • Hassle-free security plugin that’s easy to use
    • Thoroughly tested, error-free performance
