WordPress websites can be vulnerable to various types of attacks, including:
- Brute-force attacks: Attackers try to guess the usernames and passwords of WordPress users to gain unauthorized access to the website.
- SQL injection attacks: Attackers inject malicious SQL code into a website’s database through input fields such as login forms, contact forms, or search boxes.
- Cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks: Attackers inject malicious scripts into a website’s pages, which can steal sensitive data, such as login credentials, or take control of the user’s browser.
- File inclusion attacks: Attackers exploit vulnerabilities in plugins or themes to gain access to a website’s files and execute malicious code.
