Nik Rawlinsonwalks you through the process of beefing up security on your WordPress-driven site
WordPress powers almost a quarter of all the live sites on the web. That’s not surprising, as it’s well supported, easy to use and extremely flexible. It’s no longer just a blogging tool either, since the fully fledged content management system sitting behind the friendly interface is more than capable of running hugely popular sites.
Unfortunately, the more popular a system becomes – be it Windows, Android or a publishing tool such as WordPress – the more it attracts the attention of less scrupulous users. Put simply, it’s never been more likely to be attacked than it is right now.
