WordPress is very popular software
This is generally a good thing, especially since it’s developed by a huge group of volunteers from all over the world. If it weren’t so popular, then there wouldn’t be so many volunteers always working on the next release.
However, being popular can have its downsides. For example, many of you probably know that there are far more computers in the world running Microsoft Windows than Apple’s OS X, which is why almost every virus, trojan and other piece of malware has been written to target the Windows platform – it simply makes sense for the criminals who write this stuff to concentrate their efforts on Windows (it’s not, as many Apple Mac users believe, because Apple Mac is a safer, more secure platform!).
So are we saying that using WordPress to run your website isn’t safe?
No, absolutely not! Being so popular could be a bad thing, if it weren’t for all the developers who are always working on the next release of the platform. During the past few days, there has been a new version of WordPress released: WordPress 3.5.2 Maintenance and Security Release, and it fixes twelve bugs!.
