Problems with using WordPress from an IndieWeb perspective.
- WordPress seems to have a non trivial security hole every 6 months and I never have the time to tend to my WP install. The last major problem resulted in my blog being infested with malware and my site blacklisted by google. WordPress is like Windows. It's probably not really less secure than the alternatives but its popularity is such that it makes an attractive target. Most WordPress blogs are configured to ping an update service so hackers have no trouble finding targets. Any IndieWeb solution needs to think about automatic updates and defense in depth security. -- Michael.net
- Dan Brickley mentioned WordPress as one of a few open source CMS installs of which at least one was hacked and then his home page overwritten with spam link spam, forcing him to throw them all away and go with a simple static home page. He specifically mentions "must've left an update too late".
