BBQ includes many protection mechanisms and is recommended for sites where .htaccess files are not used due to technical reasons.

Under the hood, BBQ works by blocking any server request that contain long strings, base64_ strings, or eval statements.

BBQ also uses the 5G/6G public blacklists, scanning all incoming traffic for known attack locations.

The plugin does not require any configuration. Just install and you're ready to go.

Installation:

Unpack and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
