A majority of bloggers use wordpress.wordpress is a popular CMS(Content Management System).it is used because of its ease and security.
But the problem starts when you have security issues with your wordpress blog.
The question arises that why wordpress has still security issues.it is another question.
The problem arises when user do something wrong with some of these things which are given below:
Plugins play the biggest role in disturbing wordpress security.many of the plugins carry malware or bloatwares.
Always confirm that the plugin is issued by a trusted authority.do not use a plugin by non-trusted developer.those plugins can cause serious security issues.
Beware of plugins which are freely available to you.
Always try to use premium plugins especially administrative and e-commerce related plugins.premium plugins have regular updates and security advancements in them.
Never trust a free theme even when it is from an authority.
No one gives his hard work for granted.
There is a reason behind free themes.the developers try to steal your secert data.Such As Bank Information.
Always buy a premium theme from a trusted authority.if you do not do so,then one day you will have to lose your Blog/Website.
So i personally prefer you to use a premium/paid template.
Many of us want to add more styles and functionality to our blogs.but carelessly we copy css shortcodes from fake websites and use them to add funtionality to their websites.
But most of shortcodes come with fake redirects or phishing links behind them.
Majority of us install themes/plugins but they forget to hit the update button.
Many developers release updates in order to cope with securiry issues.but problem arises when we do not update our plugins/themes.
And also check official updates for wordpress frequently.
I Want to say that security loopholes are not the headache of wordpress only.but it is our responsibility to free up our site from junky/fake plugins and themes.
So delete any extra plugin or plugin that seems to be fake.
I Again advise you to keep your site up-to-date.
If you have Any Problems Related Your WordPress security.
Feel free to discuss your problems below.
Best Of Luck!
