Happy Labor Day! We’re supposed to take the day off, we’re not supposed to labor, right? Not going to happen at Eco-Office Gals, I always work – it’s a bad habit. However, Labor Day is all about the sales, I can do that at least.
I was reading Top 10 WordPress Security Myths on ProBlogger, I have heard many people use every one of these excuses:
- WordPress is not secure.
- Nobody wants to hack my blog.
- My WordPress site is 100% secure.
- I only use themes and plugins from wordpress.org so they are secure.
- Updating WordPress whenever I log in is cool.
- Once my WordPress site is setup my job is finished.
- I’ll just install xyz plugin and that’ll take care of security for me.
- If I disable a plugin or theme, there is no risk.
- If my site is compromised I will quickly find out.
- My password is good enough.
I would like to give some special attention to Myth #6:
Once my WordPress site is set up, my job is finished: Having a WordPress site is an ongoing commitment—it’s like having a dog. As a bare minimum your WordPress blog needs to be maintained when new updates come out. This is crucial even if you do not write new posts or otherwise update the content.
I’ve heard this assumption too many times! You can’t convince people otherwise until they wake up one morning and their WP site is hijacked, probably through a “back door” found in an out of date plugin. The whole site is gone because they couldn’t spend a little time each month making sure all the doors are locked. Don’t get me wrong, nothing is fool proof, but running WordPress updates regularly is one of a few simple steps to make your security just a little more robust.
What does all this lecturing about WP security have to do with a Labor Day Sale, you ask? Eco-Office Gals offers a monthly update package for your WordPress website.
