I have been doing some work with WordPress lately and am most impressed with the improvements of WordPress recently. A few years ago WordPress was a major security pain on my dedicated servers. But lately with improvements to WordPress’ security and user/owner awareness, things are much tighter on the security front these days.

Using plugins like Akismet and Jetpack help a lot regarding security, but nothing helps as much as user awareness and constant monitoring of WordPress sites for security flaws, break in attempts, etc.

Of late I feel very relaxed using WordPress and the wide range of plugins. Most important of course is to go out and check the security and comments regarding any plugin you want to use in WordPress…
