For this article, we’re going to focus on threats particular to the WordPress content management system (CMS), since it is approximately more popular than sliced bread. How popular? Try on these numbers.
- 35% of all websites use WordPress
- WordPress owns 62% of the CMS market
- WordPress powers almost 15% of the Top 100 websites (including Disney and Microsoft)
- Market share is still growing
Obviously, with that kind of popularity, hackers aren’t going to decide en masse to just leave the platform alone. There are particular security issues that go hand-in-hand with running a WordPress site.

- Brute force attacks
- File inclusion exploits
- SQL injections
- Cross-site scripting

They take care of the majority of security behind the scenes at the server level and won’t let you back there to futz around even if you ask.
But let’s get down to the nitty-gritty on what actions a small business owner should take today to make sure the bad guys stay on the outside. Here is our A-Z Website Security Guide for WordPress Business Owners.
