WordPress is a free CMS (Content Management System) which allows to create and manage websites very simply and which does not require any particular technical knowledge. Very popular with bloggers, it is used on 17 million websites, making it the leader in its market.

The tool offers a whole range of plugins developed by individuals or professionals, free or paid, to add features to your site. In 2017, WordPress offered over 50,000 plugins on its download platform.

What are the computer security risks for a WordPress website ?

Being the most widely used CMS in the world, WordPress is frequently targeted by hackers. WordPress is Open Source which means that the community can participate in its development and improvement. When there is a development on the core of the software, the code is first analyzed by professionals before being published online. However, not all plugins and themes are subject to this type of verification and are therefore potentially vulnerable. Imagine the consequences that could cause a security vulnerability on WordPress, many websites would be affected.

In February 2017, website owners using the famous CMS, saw their website attacked by hackers. Following the discovery of a vulnerability in the WordPress REST API version 4.7.2, more than 1.5 million pages were destroyed. This is a large-scale attack as Feedjit (Editor of the Wordfence security plugin) reported having more than 20 different attack signatures. The number of websites affected by this attack is over 40,000, knowing that a website has potentially several pages which can be impacted. An update has been released by WordPress developers to correct this vulnerability. However, as long as the update is not installed the website will remain vulnerable to attacks.
