Your website can be targeted for an attack, or simply be vulnerable to invasion.

Thus, there are two types of security attacks: Targeted and Opportunistic.

Hackers who break into computers for nefarious purposes or malicious intent, perhaps motivated by profit, protest, or simply the challenge, are referred to as wearing black hats.

Because there are so many WordPress websites, robots crawl the web looking for  an opportunity to invade those which are vulnerable . These sites get added to black-hat portfolios to form a network of sites that can be used for things like spamdexing, keyword stuffing, doorway pages, page hijacking, email spoofing, data scrapingurl redirects, etc.

You could also be directly targeted for spywarekeystroke logging, etc.

To assist in removing a security weakness, you may need the advice of a hacker wearing a white hat.
