My hubby pointed this out to me and I mentioned it on my goals post (securing the sites I support) and realized many of you might use WordPress too. Here's the article that tells what the problem is and how to fix it.

Also, Tigertech offers the reminder to remove old plugins and themes that you are not using because they can be breeding grounds for potential hacks and exploits and you won't notice until too late because you're not actively using them.
