When we are running a WordPress websites, we need to protect our websites against malicious URL requests. When I find an easy solution for this, I found a free and very good WordPress plugin called Block Bad Queries (BBQ) to block bad requests automatically. It is a simple and handy PHP script that protects your WordPress website 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.

Features of "Block Bad Queries (BBQ)" plugin as follows:

  • Plug-n-play functionality
  • No configuration required
  • Born of simplicity, no frills
  • Blocks a wide range of malicious requests
  • Based on the 5G/6G Blacklist
  • Scans all incoming traffic and blocks bad requests
  • Works silently behind the scenes to protect your site
  • Customize blocked strings via Whitelist/Blacklist plugins
