The security is a thing that must to deal with for all website owners. WordFence offers a complete security solution for WordPress, which – I think – is one of the bests in the market right now.

The Wordfence scanner checks core files, themes and plugins for malware, bad URLs, backdoors, SEO spam, malicious redirects and code injections.

If you don’t want to get hundreds of spam comment into your website, than strongly recommended to use the WordPress default spam filter plugin, the Akismet.
The Akismet is a free to use spamfilter (for personal blogs, and webistes), which filter the comments by a big central database. The most of the users the akismet significantly reduced or even stopped the spam floading. If some reason a comment passes through the sieve, than it goes to moderate status, and if you flagged to spam than the Akismet learns it.
