WordPress Security 101 Course at The Foundation
Last updated on January 25th, 2017 at 11:11 pm
About two months ago I was asked to participate to a private course about WordPress Security hosted by The Foundation.
The idea was to create a hands on presentation of a WordPress Hacked site and the steps needed to clean it.
The WordPress Security Course was co-presented with Takis Bouyouris of Nevma and Stefanos Grammenos.
Event was scheduled for April 16th and I was "lucky" enough to see the Panama Papers breach pop up due to a WordPress related hack which I used as a real case example for my presentations*.
On my first presentation I showed how someone can gain access to a WordPress site through an outdated and vulnerable plugin such as Slider Revolution Plugin(RevSlider) while on my second presentation I showed how can anyone clean his/her hacked WordPress website.
