WordPress was built on community.
Because WordPress is open-source, it allows websites to be built on a platform that was created with user customization in mind. The creators of WordPress encourage their global community to continuously update and improve upon their platform, without rules or regulations. This freedom allows for endless possibilities when it comes to building custom websites for businesses and individuals. However, the same freedom that makes WordPress so adaptable and customizable also makes it vulnerable. Opening the door to the entire world to contribute their ideas and improve upon the platform is why WordPress is so great – and why it’s so important to change the locks once you’ve moved in.
How to Secure Your WordPress Website
On average, 30,000 new WordPress websites get hacked each day. Sites built on top of WordPress can be an easy target for hackers because of obsolete software, weak passwords, and out-of-date plugins. Most website owners don’t know they’re vulnerable, or they don’t think the evil-doers of the internet would have any interest in hacking their website. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Hackers can easily scan your website and tell instantly if you’re running out-of-date software.
There are free online tools available for anyone to use, to scan any website.
If attackers see that a website is using out-of-date software, they will often take the opportunity to use your website to their advantage, injecting malware into your site, or adding links to generate “SEO spam” that benefits them, but hurts your site. The good news is, it’s very easy to secure your website and keep the bad guys out.
