However, these systems may fail to stop getting your website hacked, if any of the point already discussed in WordPress Codex left untouched by you as an CMS user.
" Security in WordPress is taken very seriously, but as with any other system there are potential security issues that may arise if some basic security precautions aren't taken.

" It's easy to look at web hosts and pass the responsibility of security to them, but there is a tremendous amount of security that lies on the website owner as well.
