It seems like hardly a day goes by without a story about website hacking, data leaking and the business problems that arise from this activity.
If you have a WordPress website then the dangers of a hack attack are even more real as WordPress can be extremely vulnerable to certain types of attack.
The problem arises from the fact that over a quarter of the world’s websites are now on WordPress, and with the same logic that hackers used previously, designing viruses for Microsoft products as most of the world were on PC’s, today they are devising hacks for WordPress.
The key question though, is how do the hackers know what to attack?
We particularly liked this infographic from the fabulous people at Wordfence which shows you quite clearly, who is hacking, what they are looking for and by default, what you should be locking down.
