According to W3Techs, 43.2% of all websites on the internet use WordPress. And of all websites that use a CMS (Content Management System) more than half (64%) leverage WordPress to power their blog or website. Unfortunately, since WordPress has such a large market share it has also become a prime target for attackers.
You might be wondering whether WordPress is safe to use. And the short answer is yes — WordPress core is safe to use, but only if you maintain it to the latest version and employ some additional protections on the admin login page.
