Looks to me like you have a broken SQL statement. Not sure how any of that would make a security scan fail. What version of Event Espresso do you have installed?

Hi,
Thank you for the quick reply. I’m using 3.1.25.L version at the moment.
we had an issue of “”Event Espresso attendee data needs to be updated.Run Attendee Update Script” few days back. Then i reinstall the plugin 2 days back. Seem to be that was settled. Now i got this security scan failed notice from go daddy.
How can i fix this?.

For security purposes you should install the following plugins.

Limit Login Attempts – stops hackers from continuously trying different username and passwords
Wordpress Firewall 2 – stops sql injections and other attacks
WP-Ban – Ban those ip address who tried the above

I would also use
Hide Login to change your login from wp-admin to something else
