Is WordPress a Secure Blogging Platform?

On a fundamental level, WordPress can be considered a secure platform. Even though it has had certain vulnerabilities found in its core system, it doesn’t have a bad track record of security issues. The bigger problem is that WordPress users themselves don’t follow even the most practical security precautions.

Here are some of the things to look out for:

  • Pirated themes and plugins tend to be riddled with scripts and other hidden code that can hijack your website.
  • Using outdated plugins which haven’t been updated in 3+ years.
  • Adding plugins or themes to your site from untrustworthy sources.
  • Leave features like “Site Editing” enabled which can lead to instant hijack with only your WordPress login information alone.

So, ultimately, to keep WordPress secure you have to be mindful of the choices you make in regard to using external features.
