5 WordPress Security Issues & How to Fix Them

Today WordPress powers nearly 78 million of the world’s websites. It is built and designed for web standards, aesthetics, as well as usability. This makes WordPress an Alpha CMS amongst Blogger, Drupal and Microsoft’s Share Point. However, with such mass usage, WordPress is also a popular target for cyber crooks.

We believe that half of the vulnerabilities in a WordPress website are at the users end. This makes them an easy target for the assailants. Out of the box, there are some best practices that can tighten the security of WordPress websites.

What can you do to secure your WordPress website? Here are the top 5 tips to keep your Websites Secure!

Number 1: Regular Updates

You will need to keep WordPress Core, Plug-ins, themes up to dated, which will help you in running a stable website.

Number 2: Don’t Use “Admin” As Your Username

By default, WordPress assigns the main administrative account under the name “admin.” It makes a lot of sense. In 2014, hackers volleyed a series of brute-force attacks at WordPress websites, repeatedly attempting to login by pairing the main account “admin” with common passwords. They were pretty successful. Even if you have a complicated, secure password, it’s still not a good idea to use a well-known username. There are two ways you can fix this: one involves creating a new account, and the other requires logging into your Cpanel and changing the username through PHPMyAdmin.

Number 3: Change Your Passwords Regularly

About 20% of WordPress sites are hacked due to a weak password. Use a combination of numbers, symbols and different case letters (upper and lower) or a password manager.

Even though most sites recommend using eight characters, try to keep your passwords above ten characters.

Number 4: Limit Login Attempts

It’s possible to block a single IP from trying to hack your website by limiting the amount of login attempts that can be made. This can be done with plugins, such as the Limit Login Attempts plugin. It automatically blocks an IP after it breaches the login limit, and allows you to specify how long that IP address remains locked out.

Number 5: Delete Any Plugins or Themes You’re Not Using 

Remove or delete any plugins and themes you are not using on your site. Unused or inactive themes and plug-ins possess a potential threat to users WordPress website; hence it is of utter importance that user assure no such extensions are in user WordPress database. This would also save user from any unnecessary updates required for them.
