The primary security issues affecting a website is:

  • Poorly chosen passwords
  • Susceptibility to password dictionary attacks
  • Outdated and insecure software (plugins)

Because WordPress is public domain software, a lot of eyeballs have reviewed the source code, found and resolved security issues over the years. Public domain software seems to ALWAYS have fewer security vulnerabilities than commercial software for this reason.

Additionally the modular nature of WordPress allows the easy installation of plugins that server specific purposes, some of which are related to security.

Background

All security is time based.

No system, home, car, etc, etc is 100% secure against unauthorized access. People who want in bad enough will expend a lot of effort. Your job is to make sure you are alerted and can take action before they get in.

Your system is secure the time needed to breach it is longer than the time needed to respond and take action.

Be a small target

As with most security issues, most bad guys are looking for easy targets. The trick is for YOU to not be an easy target.  Two plugins, some settings, enforcing strong passwords, and you’re good against 99% of all the bad guys out there.

Tools

The tools I use are listed below. Click each of the links below for more detail.
