How Hackers Exploit WordPress Plugin Vulnerabilities
A FREE ONLINE TRAINING EVENT
Vulnerable WordPress plugins are the #1 reason WordPress sites get hacked. The hacks that exploit WordPress plugin vulnerabilities may seem mysterious and even frightening, but there are measures you can put in place to guard your site against these vulnerabilities.
With a drastic increase in vulnerability disclosures in 2021, having a comprehensive security strategy for your WordPress site is more important than ever. Knowledge is power, so during this free online training webinar, WordPress security expert Kathy Zant will give you a quick and simple overview of how plugin vulnerabilities work, along with an actual demonstration of an old plugin vulnerability being exploited.
This demonstration will underscore how important it is to keep your plugins updated. We’ll also talk about some common attacks and how the iThemes Security plugin helps you make good decisions to keep your WordPress websites secure.
