Why do I even need to worry about security for wordpress ?

I’ve heard it loads of times ‘my site has nothing important, no-one would want to hack it’

The truth is cyber criminals and bot networks don’t know you, or care about your site.

They are interested in hacking your site to

  • use it to hack others – they build up a huge network of hacked sites, to use as weapons
  • deface your site, and extort money from you to repair it
  • just causing mahem

What I find interesting is small companies paying $5-$15/month in hosting that does not have good security. You’ll find your clean up bill for a hack will run into the hundreds. I’ve even seen people lose their website, and have to start again, as they find out their backups also contained the hack.
