Plugin Review: Prevent Malicious Cyberattacks On Your WP Web Site By HackersThe sheer number of attacks on websites and blogs around the world is massive, and things are only going to get worse.

You can safely assume that if you haven’t been hacked yet, then it’s inevitable that at some point in time someone will attempt to hack into your site.

On March 11, 2014, technology sites like Cnet.com reported that over 162,000 legitimate WordPress websites had been hacked.

According to the Cnet report,

“With some old-fashioned trickery, hackers were able to get more than 162,000 legitimate WordPress-powered Web sites to mount a distributed-denial-of-service attack against another Web site.”

According to security firm Sucuri, hackers had leveraged a well-known flaw to attack unsuspecting WordPress websites and direct a distributed-denial-of-service cyber attack (DDoS) towards another popular website.

You may think that the information in your site is of no interest to hackers, but the reality is that to a hacker, all websites are an opportunity to profit or benefit at your expense.

If a malicious user can exploit a flaw in your system that allows them to gain control of your blog, your site can then be used as a “bot” in a planned cyber attack against more valued websites.

The harsh reality is that hackers are very likely trying to break into your site while you are reading this article. Whether they can get into your site or not, depends on how hard or easy you can make it for them to continue trying until they either can discover how to get access, or decide to look for a less protected target.

How Much Information Are You Broadcasting To Hackers About Your Site?

Does your website run on WordPress? If so visit a site like Hackertarget.com and run your website through their WordPress security scan …

It should be obvious after using the tool shown above that if you can access all of this information about your blog, so can hackers.

Being able to see what version of WordPress you are using, which plugins and themes you have installed on your site, and which files have been uploaded to certain directories on your server can all be potentially valuable information to hackers, as these can inform them about any exploitable security vulnerabilities, especially where site owners haven’t updated their sites.

Fortunately, there is a solution to stop broadcasting all of this information about your website and protect against other malicious threats.

Blog Defender Security Plugin For WordPress

Product Description

Blog Defender is a suite of WordPress security video tutorials, WordPress plugins and tools, plus a WordPress security PDF/DOC file.

Matt Garrett, the developer of the BlogDefender security suit began developing BlogDefender after noticing that a WordPress site he set up for his mother got hacked into and suspended by its hosting company. This site had literally no value to offer, yet it was still hacked.

Matt only became aware of what had happened after being contacted by his host and seeing that a significant amount of suspicious activity had taken place inside his site, as well as the addition of several phishing files by whoever had broken into the site.
