WordPress is the most popular content management system (CMS) in the world. It powers millions of websites, including some of the biggest names on the internet. While WordPress is a great platform, it does have its flaws and security vulnerabilities.

Becoming familiar with the most common phishing risks on WordPress can allow you to properly protect your customer's data now and in the future. Common scams, such as credit card skimming, can be executed in a way that consumers and business owners easily ignore. Hackers often put in Javascript codes that allow them to quickly snatch the credit card number of consumers, allowing them to make unauthorized purchases as a result.

  • A big risk to WordPress users lies in the ability for intruders to slip malware into themes and plugins that are not up to date.
  • Since back data surrounding previous login information on WordPress is easy to find, unauthorized logins are not out of the realm of possibility.
