A little heads up: all links mentioned in this post are a 100% secure, and they are from trusted sites.
It has come to my attention, that there are some nasty things that have happened here on WordPress. So I decided to share some information with you guys.
Recently, there have been cases of WP server hacking; which I’m pretty sure you’re aware of. I was informed of this by a fellow blogger, just last Saturday, and I have to say: one of my worst fears has come true.
Today, I was informed by another blogger about spam mail threats. To be honest, the digital era is indeed a scary one; cause I feel everyone’s identity and data might be at risk.
Sadly, some grade A moron nearly targeted me with this crap. 😡
My advice to you guys, is to stay on high alert! If you think a comment feels super sketchy and odd with a suspicious link: PLEASE DON’T CLICK ON IT! It could contain some malware that could compromise you with just a click. Mark that person as a spam, block that user immediately, and then delete the comment.
Be sure to check your spam mail for such things, and make sure to update your themes (if there’s one required), because I read in the news that un-updated themes have a tendency of being targeted. Also make sure your passwords are strong, and your installed plugins are secure, and from a valid and trusted source(if you have one). The website MalCare has more information on this, and I suggest you go check it out by clicking the link below:
Please take care of yourselves, and stay on high alert! We can avoid putting ourselves in hazardous situations; only if we are careful enough to make decisions. Stay safe; and don’t forget to share this article to spread the word. Until then, fellow readers!
