Article Update of the Report 03, 2019!
Wordpress tripled vulnerabilities in 2018
An increase of 300% with 542 security glitches were mainly caused by bugs in plugins (98%) as reported. As a result we advise as always to reduce the amount of plugins, integrate them in the template, make a security or malware removal scan and don't update Wordpress earlier than the plugins.
As the most popular content management system (CMS) powering about 30% of all websites on the internet it is an interesting target for hackers.
Editors Note: I personally see 3 other problems you should be aware of.
• First the problem with the child version architecture, which won't get actualized with the update,
• then a missing control instance before distributing plugins on the WP platform as everybody can publish uncontrolled code making money with "open doors"
• and last but not least the last years leave of high qualified program coordinators because of dissonance with the development of the Gutenberg editor.
As advise for the IT responsible staff: stay up-to-date by installing a 404 tool grabbing all spider attends for plugin file search.
