Firstly, the bad news. As WordPress is the most widely used content management system on the planet, there’s a lot of hackers continually targeting WordPress sites. As many people don’t take web security too seriously, when a hacker figures out how to exploit one site, chances are they can probably use that same technique to exploit other sites as well.
You’re probably thinking, “but nobody would want to hack my site, why do I need to worry about security?” The reality is that it is as much a game as anything else for hackers.
You don’t have to be a big brand or an e-commerce site to be targeted by hackers. They like a challenge, they play their game, and often there’s enough satisfaction to be gained from de-facing your site or using it to generate thousands of spam emails for them to hack it.
Now for the good news. There are a number of things (16 to be precise) that you can do to make your WordPress website 99.9% secure and safe from hacking. A little bit of prevention is better than the hassle and expense of trying to fix a hacked website isn’t it?
