Blocking WordPress xmlrpc.php requests globally on Plesk

Create a new file called: /etc/httpd/conf.d/xmlrpc.conf with this content in it:

<Files xmlrpc.php>
order deny,allow
deny from all

Then restart the web server. Now your host will not have to deal with the many automated xmlrpc exploit attempts it receives.
