    Lightbulb Secure WordPress

    WordPress can be secured if you adjusted it with the right plugins.

    Check the plugins on this link: http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/hardeni...ress-security/

    All the Best!

    I hope you were careful enough to make a monthly backup.

    It's the easiest way to "clean" an infected site.

    Due to its popularity and relatively weak codebase, Wordpress gets hacked often. A recent study has found that more than 20% of the 50 most popular Wordpress plugins are insecure. And that 7 of the 10 most popular Wordpress ecommerce plugins are insecure.

    That's bad news and confirms how Wordpress got its very poor reputation on security. I also don't use Wordpress unless the customer insists on it, and then I only provide support if they go on a prepaid (hourly based) support plan.

    Why did you switch from your custom CMS to Wordpress?

    Wordpress can not be secure if you will not do research on this most common way of hacking wordpress site is to insert files in your uploads folder if your file permission is set to 777 then you will get hack easily and in shared host the chances are very high so take a vps and secure your directory with .htaccess files so that no one can see directory
