and anything can be hacked if it's not made secure.And WP is less secure than most.
And you can make WordPress secure.Yes, but the average joe doesn't know that. They sign up to something, thinking it is already secure. And who wouldn't?
Google anything with hacking issues. WordPress is no worse than Drupal or Joomla (probably better) or a variety of ecommerce packages.When I hear that someone's site has been hacked, 99% of the time it is either a php site, or a wordpress site. I don't hear the same with html sites.
Since the end of 2004, the US National Vulnerability Database has recorded 389 types of WordPress issues and vulnerabilities
While WordPress has been continuously releasing new versions that loop up the security holes, its popularity as a blogging platform has always prompted hackers to come up with new measures to hack information
WordPress is a database backed platform that is based on PHP scripts, which makes it vulnerable to SQL injection attacks.
I don't hear the same with html sites.
