How WordPress websites get hacked

While WordPress is a popular and user-friendly platform for creating websites, it is also one of the most common targets for hackers. There are a few ways that WordPress websites can get hacked.

One is through brute force attacks, where hackers try to gain access to the WordPress site by guessing the username and password. Another way is by exploiting vulnerabilities in WordPress plugins or themes. Hackers can also gain access to WordPress sites through weak passwords or by phishing attacks, where they trick users into entering their credentials on a fake WordPress login page. Once they have gained access to a WordPress site, hackers can then plant malware or redirect traffic to other websites.

The best way to protect your website from hackers is to keep it up-to-date and use strong passwords.
