A few more words about this course

In a recent study done by Sucuri, around 90% of all the hacked content management systems that they investigated and helped to fix were WordPress websites. If you rely on your website for your business - whether for marketing, business operations, collection of payment, or anything important - protecting your website is crucial.

Did You Know?

  • WordPress is the most widely-used CMS software in the world and it powers more than 40% of the top 10 million websites, giving it an estimated 62% market share of all sites using a CMS.
  • According to a study by Sucuri, a multi-platform security company, WordPress continues to lead the infected websites they worked on (at 83%)
  • Because WordPress powers over 40% of all websites on the internet, and with hundreds of thousands of theme and plugin combinations, it is not surprising that vulnerabilities exist and are constantly being discovered.
  • According to WordPress, today over 57% of WordPress users are still on PHP 5.6 or lower
  • If you combine this with PHP 7.0, a whopping 77.5% of users are currently using PHP versions that are no longer supported
  • Did you know that it has been reported that plugin vulnerabilities represent 56% of the known entry points for hackers
