SECURITY COUNCILS IN WORDPRESS
At the time of developing a webpage you have multiple options, from the design to size to the use of some CMS or manager of contents Web. In this case I am going to treat the used CMS more at world-wide level, WordPress.
REALLY IS SAFE WORDPRESS?
The reason that much people become this question is due to the news that you can find by Internet speaking of attacks to made webpages with WordPress. These attacks are counted by thousand or tens of thousands and mainly have their origin in the accessories that are added to the own platform (plugins or new functionalities, subjects, etc.), since when being about an Open Source solution or opened code, the developers can improve the platform, add new functionalities, discover bugs and correct them.
The problem comes when the developer does not have good intentions and uses this context to mount attacks to the websites that use this CMS.
However, responding to the question, it is not that WordPress is less safe with respect to other solutions, the reason for this type of affirmations is in which more WordPress is the used manager and by simple statistic the percentage of attacked Webs is greater in this sense.
RECOMMENDATIONS OF SECURITY FOR WORDPRESS
You can guarantee, as far as possible, a good operation of your WordPress and without frights, but always following a series of Security Councils who we will see next:
- It establishes a safe password. It seems something obvious, but still you can be with passwords as 12345 or similars. The password always must fulfill a series of requirements, I I recommend the following to you:
- That it has at least 8 characters.
- That it contains capital letters, small letters and numbers.
- It adds some special character if it is possible as asterisk, pad, exclamations, etc.
NOTE: In the Security Councils previously described, when I periodically tell you, I talk about to that it is a task that is repeated once in a while, for example, once a month or every 15 days, since it is not necessary that you update the same day in which a new update is sent, is more, been recommendable than they spend some days so that possible failures are corrected that sometimes arise with the change from a version to another one.
As you can see, to maintain our WordPress safe is not an excessively complicated task, but it requires of some basic knowledge and to spend time to him. If this it is your case, I hope to have helped to you. On the contrary, always you can resort to professionals who can take a correct maintenance of your Web.
Immediately, I take leave until the next article and I invite to you to that years in the commentaries possible doubts or improvements of security that are happened to you and are not in this post.
