You can use that.

I install these plugins
-Timthumb scanner
-Login Lock (Can screw up at times)
-Deleting the readme.html file
-Disabling the login error message
-Moving the config.php to a secure place
-Keeping plugins up to date
-NOT using nulled plugins or themes (THIS COULD REALLY SCREW UP)

RE: How to defeat wordpress being hacked.
I have to agree with some of the others Better WP Security is amazing for a free plugin. It does 21 checks and color codes whether each one is secure or not. It is then a one click solution to make each secure. I use it on all my WP sites.

RE: How to defeat wordpress being hacked.
When ever wordpress updates, I wait a few weeks before updating all my sites because of the security vulnerabilities. This also gives developers of other plugins to update their plugins as well.

I agree with you tiger101,better wp security plugin is an awesome plugin to use. I also use s2member to help secure login attempts and to also to customise the login page. I also use wordfence and find that this combination works well.
