Running plugins with vulnerabilities is one way to get your site hacked. Not everyone spends time to keep up with WordPress security news on a daily basis though. These 6 plugins help you identify and remove plugins with vulnerabilities fast:
Plugin Vulnerabilities: displays an alert when an installed plugin has a vulnerability you need to address.
No Longer in Directory: tells you which plugins are no longer in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory.
Vulnerability Alerts: this script scans your system against WPScan database and lists issues with your plugins and themes.
Vulnerable Plugin Checker: another plugin that uses WPScan’s API to detect vulnerabilities. It sends email alerts, so you can address security issues fast.
Plugin Security Scanner: alerts you if you have plugins with any security vulnerabilities. It runs once a day and e-mails you if there are any issues.
