How hackers get your passwords and hack your WordPress website

This is an example website request that can hack open your WordPress website in a nano second.

The theme used above (mTheme-Unus) has some poor code. And the hacker can send the carefully crafted URL to download your wp-config.php (which contains your passwords).

This is why you need to keep your WordPress plugins and themes updated. ‘premium’ plugins and themes are the worst culprit – as they don’t update as often/easily and you need to keep your subscriptions to premium plugins/themes current.
The hacker here is trying to download your wp-config file – to get your passwords. (off course our security blocks it).
We use mod_security to find hacking URLs like this before they get to WordPress.
