It protects verious configuration files such as wp-config.php, bb-config.php, php.ini, php5.ini, install.php and readme.html with .htaccess security protection. Two years ago one of my site had been infected with unnecessary script injection. Then i have got the plugin and from that time everything is working good.

I use the Ad Codes Widget plugin to show the ads, script and php code in the custom widgets of the sidebar. It means you will have more control on the sidebar. You can show the data according you. If you have some knowledge of the basic web development then it would be great to manage your sidebars. This is also very helpful for the non programmer.
