Wordpress Safety - What Everyone Should Know About Securing A BlogIf you have a WordPress blog or website, WordPress security must be an issue for you. I'm sure you must have heard about hackers attacking blogs and websites of other people. The damage done by them can be enormous, especially when the particular blog was high page ranked, displaying high in search engines and profitable. It is not the only type of websites attacked by hackers. The reasoning behind their acts can't be explained as logical. They will destroy it for fun. I know stories of people who one day, instead of their website saw a short note informing them that their website has been blocked by Google due to the thread it carries to other internet users. It was a result of hacker attack, who made changes to the website.
I back my blogs frequently using a free plugin WP DB Backup up. If anything happens I will restore my website. I use WP Security Scan plugin that is free to scan my blog frequently and asks advice to be blocked by WordPress Firewall to fix malware problems free.
The one I recommend, and the approach, is to use one of the generation and storage plugins available for your browser. People like RoboForm, but I think after a free trial period, you have to pay for it. I use the free version of Lastpass, and I recommend it for those who use Firefox right here or Internet Explorer. That will generate secure passwords for you.
Fortunately, keeping your WordPress website up-to-date is one of the easiest things you can do. For the last few versions, WordPress has included the ability to set up updates. A new upgrade becomes available.
