Tips for better security with WordPress

  • Update to new release
  • Use popular plugin
  • Add this code to wp config
  • Good password – has to be criptic, use shift key, different password for different sites, no personal info.. Check out Passwordone. Wytopia
  • Use Subversion
  • wp_specialchars()
  • CSRF
  • wp_nonce_field()

Great news, WordPress is getting more secure with each new release.
