Sorry, but many of these rules are either not required because they are the same as the apache default settings if not explicitly overwritten or because WordPress itself has secure defaults (such as empty index.php files in all core folders). Preventing access to files like wp-config.php is also useless since this file has no output sent to browsers. Blocking the TRACE HTTP method doesn't do anything else apart from making network debugging harder.
Enabling gzip is useless since you enable mod_deflate later on, and you also add the deflate output filter outside of the IfModule block, which may break sites on legacy web servers.
Hiding readme files and the wp-login.php does not help security in any way - if someone wants to find out your WordPress version, they will.
Oh hey, and stop putting your company name or whatever ("LOOR Lab") in people's X-Powered-By header, that's not cool.

Summary: This is trash. Don't use this file unless you know what you are doing (if so, why are you looking at this at all?). Most of this is useless, some outright dangerous.

Well, this is the result of a process of a plugin called https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-wp-security/, are the security rules from the configuration of this plugin.

We only add some rules, some other rules of apache are taken because we can not modify or touch the server directly, in the case of some of our customers who have shared servers to apply these rules.

About X-Powered-By header, for us Gist is like a reference file, it is not a tutorial and they are not obliged to use the file, it must suppose that you must replace LOOR Lab by the name that you want to use.

If you can share a .htaccess that is the one indicated would be of great help.

Thanks !
