Most WP plugins are written by amateurs without any defensive coding skills“, said the vendors.
THIS IS A HUGE PROBLEM as 92% of WP sites are hacked this way.
3 Most Common Hack Attack Types Explained
EXPLOIT – (92% of direct hack attacks) – a badly written plugin/theme allows a hacker to execute a command/script that gives them control of your site…
FACT – popular security plugins & services DON’T offer any protection against this.
BRUTE FORCE ATTACK – (8% of direct hack attack) – Multiple attempts to guess your username/password & take control of your site
FACT – most popular security plugins & services are good at blocking this attack… but can’t deal with new amplified XMLRPC attacks.
DDOS – (Distributed Denial of Service, or “break the site” hack attack) – this is an attempt to flood your site with requests so your server falls over
FACT – Plugins CAN’T deal with this attack – you would need to use a third party service like Cloudflare or bespoke hardware protection.
In a nutshell: if you run WP sites – you need to act NOW and protect against exploits as you are not covered against the number-one risk to your site.
