About WordPress Security
The Internet can be a great place and a nasty place all at the same time. Hackers are a busy bunch, logging typically over ten thousand hack attempts per day trying to compromise your website, whether or not it is a WordPress website.
Back in the 1990’s, WordPress was insecure. This content management system (CMS) had dozens of scripts that hacker had found could be used to gain unauthorized access to ones website files. Often their exploits would be published, bringing in more hackers. Thankfully, that is no longer the case — security experts find only a few exploits a year. This is not news; literally all software, internet based or locally hosted is at risk.
All WordPress installations are still being attacked and for several reasons:
- Insecure Hosting Environment
- Insecure Plugins
- Insecure Themes
- Out of Date Software
