WordFence is 1 of the biggest in malware protection, they have an excellent firewall that they use to stop attacks from millions of unwanted IP addresses.
Now they have written a white paper (which you can read here) with new revelations in the field of security and also where most problems arise.
- Websites that are not maintained
- Plugins that are no longer updated by programmers
- Nulled plugins are still being used.
These are plugins that actually have to be bought but are provided for free by criminals. Free is not the right word, since you pay by means of the malware that the criminals put on your website via the Nulled plugin.
- Most successful hacks still come from brute-force guessing of usernames and passwords.
Are you already aware of the above 4 points? There are many more in the whitepaper!
