Hacking is such a scaring word that no one wants to become victim of this activity. Many websites got hacked every single days and hackers keep trying to enter in secured websites. In this fast tech world no one is safe and its vary hard to protect your website completely.
As the numbers of hackers are increasing the value of website security is also increasing and more people are being aware about security.
You must have heard that 2 days back many big websites (50+ websites) in Pakistan got hacked. These were Google.pk, Paypal.pk, microsoft.pk and many other big names. Although this was a DNS Attack but you cannot say that they cannot do other big attacks too. If they were able to find this loophole in the security than they can find others too.
Many newbie bloggers starting website with WordPress as CMS. They must have idea that some little WordPress Errors can break their website security and anyone can hack them very easily.
I talked about simple WordPress blog but what if a big website having thousand of employees account got hacked and hacker stolen all the data. So there must be a wall in between your user authentication and your secure website.
