1. Insecure Web Hosting

5. Insecure Themes and Plugins
Some websites distribute paid WP plugins or themes for free. Users are often tempted to use these plugins. Getting plugins from unreliable sources is very dangerous for your website. They can compromise security as well as leak sensitive information. That is why it is always suggested to use official WP repositories or trustworthy developers only. If you are on a budget and can’t afford to purchase these products then stick to free plugins that are equally good as the paid alternatives. Another option is to be on the lookout for deals for these themes and plugins and get the paid versions for half the price.
