Any and every site is a target no matter how teeny-tiny or gargantuan. The reason is that WordPress iteself is such a popular content management system (CMS) that it’s a natural target.
Hackers can create a program, commonly referred to as bots or hackbots, that automatically and systematically scans for security holes and attacks hundreds of thousands of sites simultaneiously. The more sites that can be scanned and attacked, the greater the potential success rate for the hacker.
WordPress as a target for hackers is similar to hitting a mansion-sized bull’s eye if you were playing paint ball. The chances of you being able to successfully splatter that target with paint over and over even from a great distance is almost certain.
Since WordPress now powers 28% of all websites on the internet according to W3Techs, which is also the largest segment of websites using a known CMS, there are millions of sites that hackers can target - including yours.
