How to Keep WordPress Secure

leave a comment »

After having discussions web wide, Matt finally wrote this article http://wordpress.org/development/2009/09/keep-wordpress-secure/ Wonder why people don’t update their installs, reason they give aren’t good enough, for they are compromising security for a little feature they love in the form of a plugin, fearing it might break. Many report upgrading breaks their installs, themes or plugins but most of these breakages are due to the host’s files restrictions, file quota and file counts. I have upgraded my local installs of both WordPress standard and MU, running with all kinds of themes and although I don’t have many plugins, only a few I love and there is a set of around 6-7 plugins but I haven’t faced any breaks on local installs.
