Vulnerability Checker

MainWP Vulnerability Checker extension uses WPScan Vulnerability Database API to bring you information about vulnerable plugins and themes on your Child Sites so you can act accordingly.

WPVulnDB API can be used free of charge, with an API request limit of 50 per day. To increase this limit, WPVulnDB offers paid API usage that increases the daily request limit to 250. Please note that reaching the daily API request limit is very easy. If you have ten sites with three plugins and a theme, you will hit the free 50 right away.

  • 10 WordPress Checks (1*10)
  • 30 Plugins checks (3*10)
  • 10 Theme checker (1*10)

Once you reach the daily API Requests limit, the extension stops reporting and potentially leads to misleading results.

If you need to make more than 250 API requests per day, you need to contact the WPVulnDB team for pricing.
