Security Vulnerability on WordPress Websites
This past week, there have been increased incidences of hacking on WordPress websites and is likely to continue for several more weeks. If hacked, your website may be unavailable for use until restored.
Anyone using a WordPress website should take certain immediate actions to ensure their websites are secure.
What should I do?
As there is no simple way of knowing the exact source or cause of the attacks, our best advice is to perform preventative maintenance by checking weekly for updates to any WordPress themes or plugins and apply updates those available as soon as possible.
