WordPress websites have become a popular malicious hacker target. We have all seen it in the news – thousands of WordPress websites get hacked overnight. In fact even though WordPress is really easy to use and powers around 20% of the internet sites, many businesses refuse to use it because they think it is insecure.
Inexperienced people and businesses are able to build a WordPress blog or site, because it is indeed very easy to use but do not have the knowhow to maintain a WordPress website or blog, or any other website for that matter. Unfortunately there are many of such unmaintained WordPress installations which typically end up being target for malicious attacks, because they are an easy target.
