WordPress now powers more than 30% of the websites on the net. That is a huge statistic that is also a testament to just how incredibly powerful and versatile WordPress really is as a service and a platform.
WordPress is now the ‘go-to’ option for businesses, entrepreneurs, start-ups and anyone else looking to start a new website or blog. It is incredibly powerful and customizable, completely free, and very easy to use (more on all this in a moment).
But while WordPress has an awful lot going for it, it also has a number of potential risks and threats. The risk here is that many businesses find it too easy to create a blog or website now, which then leads them open to a number of serious attacks.
What is WordPress Malware?
Malware is any kind of software that has malicious intent. This could mean:
- Spyware used to spy on passwords and collect private data
- Ransomware used to steal your data and then charge you to get it back
- Viruses which destroy systems and completely prevent them from working
- Adware which places advertisements without the user’s consent
Often, we think of viruses and adware as being problems that only affect our desktop computers. Most likely, adding a new piece of anti-virus software will be one of the first things you do upon setting up a new machine.
What we don’t realize is that websites need virus protection too! And this is especially true when it comes to WordPress.
The first thing to realize is that when you create a new website and use a hosting service, your files are being stored on a server in some remote location. That’s a permanently connected computer that’s sole job is to let other computers see the files making up various websites. This computer is prone to viruses and infections just like any other and smart hackers are able to use this to their advantage.
Likewise, it’s important to consider that WordPress is a platform that allows anyone to build tools for it. If you download a plugin (a small program that someone else has built that can be added to your WordPress site), then this will run using code that is designed specifically to operate through WordPress as the environment.
And if people can build useful programs, they can also build destructive ones.
Hackers, robots, and countless other threats make it their mission to break into websites and to install malicious software. When this happens, you may find that your customers’ details are stolen, you might see advertisements for Viagra appearing on your home page, or you might see the entire site stop working entirely.
Now you might be thinking that this doesn’t apply to you – maybe you haven’t seen any such ads and maybe your site is still working perfectly. This is a mistake, however. The most important thing to consider when it comes to WordPress security and pretty much any security, in fact, is that you shouldn’t be waiting for the worst to happen – you should anticipate and prevent the worst from happening before it does!
