SMNTCS Disable REST API User Endpoints

Disable the REST API user endpoints due to obscure user slugs

With WordPress 4.7 the REST API is part of the core. At the moment everyone has read access to the REST API. As a result of that a potential intruder can retrieve a list of all user slugs via /wp-json/wp/v2/users. This plugin disables the REST API user endpoints to obscure the user slugs.
