A Word about WordPress' Spam Vulnerability

WordPress is the "Windows" of the Content Management System space. Web administrators tend to choose WordPress due to its sophistication and feature-rich mechanism as a Content Management System. This powerful CMS software also gained popular usage due to its rich ecosystem of plugins that extends the features of WordPress beyond what the developers made the software for.

The rich plugin ecosystem is both the boom and bane of WordPress. Wordpress is known for its flexibility, however, this comes with the possible vulnerability of the plugins. With hundreds of plugins available for download and installation to a standard WordPress site, each of them opens an attack surface where cybercriminals can operate.

WordPress Antispam

One of the biggest problems with WordPress is the vulnerability when it comes to the vast plugins available for it. WordPress developers carefully tried to prevent any exploit from being taken advantage of, and they regularly update the program. But such cannot be the same for the plugin environment - not all plugin developers can keep up with reviewing their creations thoroughly.

This is where the need for a comprehensive intrusion prevention system and a 3rd party WordPress Anti Spam system be deployed. Not all WordPress Anti Spam systems are created equal, but definitely, a hardware appliance-based anti spam system will be much more robust for a mission-critical WordPress installation.
