First things first, no content management system (CMS) is immune to compromise. WordPress, with its unparalleled popularity and a dominant global market share of about 60%, is one of the most targeted platforms across the board. Whereas the WordPress Core itself is relatively tamper-proof due to regular security patches, third-party code such as plugins and themes often turn out to be low-hanging fruit.
A website hack typically entails long-term adverse consequences and can be extremely tedious to recover from. In addition to sanitizing the code, webmasters may have to plunge headlong into rebuilding the reputation of their projects from scratch.
