Is WordPress Secure?
Security Researcher Said WordPress Is a ‘Security Disaster’. Often vulnerability reports about WordPress core or plugin vulnerabilities are associated with hyperbole about the platform itself. WordPress is like any other application in that it occasionally has vulnerabilities.
But the question of whether or not WordPress is secure is complicated.
Did you know that hackers attack WordPress sites both big and small, with over 90,987 attacks happening per minute?
The issue isn’t necessarily that WordPress is a weak content management system, prone to hacking attempts and security breaches. It’s more likely a problem of visibility. WordPress is the most popular CMS around the world, so of course, it’s going to be an easy target for hackers.
Given the knowledge, we have now, it’s safe to assume that WordPress is not completely secure. Although it offers a safe environment but needs managing. The risk of a breach cannot be eliminated, but it can be reduced to a minimum. It’s well-documented that keeping WordPress, along with the themes and plugins updated are the stepping stones to keeping your WordPress website secure.
