Procrastination is the killer of all that is good, if you ask me. But this article is about keeping a secure WordPress blog, so how does this relate?Read on!I don’t think there’s a person out there that after learning just how much of a problem WordPress hacking is that it’s a good idea to enhance the security of their blogs.

Las Vegas seems to be on the bad list for just about everything, crime included.

After spending a few days and hitting a few spots around town, I finally find a cafe which offers free, unsecured Wi-Fi and to my pleasure, there are a ton of people sitting around each day connecting their laptops to the “free” Internet service. I sit down and use my handy dandy Wi-Fi cracker tool and log myself into people’s computers… remember, they’re all on a shared network.
From there it’s easy, all I need to do is upload a virus or key logger program so I can track your keyboard movements. “Hey look at that, that girl over there is logging into her blog. Here, let me see what she’s typing in for her username and password.”Don’t trust free Internet connections. At least make sure the place uses a secured Wi-Fi connection if you’re going to use it.
