Come listen to Chris Wiegman and I talk WordPress Security this Friday at 1pm Eastern Noon Central.
WordPress is running on almost a quarter of the Internet, it is very popular. With anything with that much adoption, comes people who want to expose every security hole it has. Sometimes its to put up something annoying but harmless, sometimes its to inject harmful code or a harmful website. It is why when a security release is sent out for WordPress (like the one we just got) WordPress auto-updates, security is priority for many websites.

This episode we talk about:

What services are available to help prevent hacking
