Bryley Basics: Free anti-malware plug-in for WordPress

Intel Security’s McAfee group now offers a free McAfee SECURE certification plug-in for WordPress-based websites.  This plug-in protects WordPress websites from unwanted malware while site-visitors can verify a site’s integrity by right-clicking on the McAfee SECURE logo (shown below).

The free version covers the first 500 site-visitors each month; a paid version (about $80 per month) accommodates more than 500 visitors and allows for some different themes for the trust-mark itself.

James Wheeler, our Internet Marketing Associate, installed the plug-in in May; at first, it did not initially deploy the trust-mark properly, but has since been working reliably at since early June.
