The project will be considered a success after a code audit when a screen recording showing WPscan failing on a website with your plugin is installed.

I will retain the rights and source code to the plugin after development.

The plugin should be packaged as a reusable plugin.

    Hello, I have a question. How do you intend to make the GZIP payload file available through reusable packaging? Thanks, Pratyush

    It is quite impossible to do what you are asking. I did an analysis and below are the findings (to aid other developers as well):

    WPScan has a database of plugins to check for in the scan. And the scan does only a HEAD request on the files in the database. EG: /wp-content/plugins/classic-editor/robots.txt. If you want to package it as a reuseable plugin, wpscan first has to know that there is a plugin like that. Even if you manage to spoof a file in an existing plugin and install it manually, it will never get processed as a zipfile as it does only a HEAD request. The ideal way would be to collaborate with WPScan to add this as a feature.
