Why WordPress Has Higher Security Risk?
Where WordPress is the most popular CMS to build and manage website, it is backed by open source community of web experts. Even though Google treats WordPress as a blog, which is the main reason for higher Google ranking, WordPress is prone to security risks. Unfortunately the sheer volume of sites and extensive documentation available also assist hackers to learn enough about the system to identify the weaknesses of a WordPress site and capitalize on those weaknesses. One such example is called Brute Force. This attack can compromise any WordPress website and the hacker can insert malicious scripts that makes it more vulnerable.
Once a malicious script gets inserted into a WordPress CMS, it can automatically duplicate itself and can create redirect links, spam content, or can even get completely hacked showing pages from another website. Even after removing such virus, malicious scripts from the website, the website is never as the hacking can reoccur because it is very hard to investigate the parts of database that were hacked earlier.
