Is WordPress Secure? Hackers attack WordPress sites both big and small with over 90,000 per minute. Fortunately, there are ways in which we can help protect your site.
The security team behind WordPress works diligently to fix vulnerabilities that surface within the WordPress core. Security patches are included in core updates which are released consistently.
Since WordPress was released back in 2013 there have been over 2,450 security vulnerabilities which have been quickly patched consistently. There were even times where the fixes were released within 40 Minutes of discovering the vulnerability.
The Problem is that you need to keep WordPress core upto date in order to apply the security patches which are rolled out. Updates are often automatic or one-click. Although ensure you have a back up in place before you update.
Keeping WordPress up to date is by far the most important factor for the security of your website.
When writing code, it is nearly impossible to not create any security holes. When hackers find these vulnerabilities, they exploit them and your left with a compromised site.
It’s just as important that your computer’s secure as it is that your site is secure. Malware and viruses can infect your computer, which can spread to not only your WordPress site but hundreds of thousands of other WordPress sites.
