It’s not very often I post negative things here but this one is regarding the very platform I’m using to show you this crap and the recent increase of hackers targeting WordPress.
Well most, if not all, of the hacks are for plugins. Most of these hacks are quickly patched but some are abandoned and some admins aren’t vigilant and don’t keep their installations updated!
I’m not naive, I know I’m not invulnerable, but this is a very slim installation of WordPress with very few plugins (none of which have been knowingly hacked yet) and kept up to date. If it ever does get hacked though I’ll sadly have to discontinue this blog. Hopefully I can stay on top of it and not let anything through between frequent updates. Such a pity that hackers have to get their dirty hands into just about every tiny corner, nook and cranny on the Internet. Sad fact of life.
