Beagle Security – WP Security, Advanced Penetration Testing

Beagle Security – WP Security, Advanced Penetration Testing



Beagle Security is a web application penetration testing tool that helps you to identify vulnerabilities on your WordPress website before hackers exploit them.

35% of the web is built on WordPress and it’s a favorite target for hackers. Vulnerabilities in the WordPress core, plugins, and themes can all leave your website prone to a cyber attack leading to loss of critical data and financial losses.

That is why you need to proactively tackle WordPress website security and make sure you’re secure from common WordPress security vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, file inclusion exploits, directory traversal, and many more.

With Beagle Security, you can find complex attack vectors WordPress vulnerability scanners fail to detect. Vulnerability scanners give you quick scan results, but they are not designed to identify modern security threats.

By leveraging an AI-powered core, Beagle Security does in-depth penetration tests on your website and discovers all the loopholes in it. With evidence-based vulnerability reporting, you get insights into the occurrence of each vulnerability on your website and actionable recommendations on how to fix the discovered security issues and secure your website.

Beagle Security’s free plugin helps you to:

  • Connect securely to your Beagle Security account
  • Complete domain verification with just a button’s click

Beagle isn’t your typical security plugin. It is for pen testing. Which some people might not understand but basically it acts like a hacker and then proceeds to check both your website security and server (web host) security. After anywhere from one to two days of grueling testing it generates a rather detailed report of what security problems you have on your website. The thought process behind this plugin is simple, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” which basically means it’s easier to stop a problem before it happens than to fix the problem after it happens. Beagle does this well by informing you about the latest exploits that can harm your website. Some of their recommendations your probably not going to be able to fix as many I found were server related meaning, you most likely have a pretty poor host. However, when I showed this report to my web host I was surprised to see how well they reacted sometimes pointing out errors of my own and sometimes admitting that they had holes or flaws in their security. Either way if you do any real website testing, I would recommend Beagle. There are a few things they can fix: 1.) Website and WordPress app have flipped values when installing the plugin. The website ask for application token and then access token. The plugin asks for access token then application. Someone who is moving through it fast and not reading will think it should follow the website. Make it uniform just to keep standards the same. Rather than flip flopping. 2.) The report is good. Links to suggested fixes for resources would improve the report itself. It gives a basic summary which I had to Google. A small list of fixes or website resources would be super helpful. Consider including. Thanks for the hard work. Even these small issues are not enough to knock it down.
