Packt Publish WordPress 3 Ultimate Security Book

Packt have published ” WordPress 3 Ultimate Security Book” by Olly Connelly.

The book contains hundreds of external references to true-tested plugins, security wares and modules and to security and ethical hacking resources. It explains how safely to administer WordPress, for instance using HTTPS, SFTP and SSH or when using a shared terminal, café or wifi hotspot. It has chapters dedicated to copyright protection, to setting up a security policy, how properly to recover from disaster and how to evaluate a web host. Proactively, it even tutors readers with the hacker’s methodology, and toolset, so as to uncover vulnerabilities by hacking ourselves, safely, before someone else does, maliciously.

“Your site is only as safe as its weakest local-to-remote link,” says Connelly. “This work is designed to address that, from A to Z and, frankly, while there’s no silver bullet, we can reduce the risk of a successful attack from practically inevitable to practically zero.”

Overview of WordPress 3 Ultimate Security:
Know the risks, think like a hacker, use their toolkit, find problems first – and kick attacks into touch

Lock down your entire network from the local PC and web connection to the server and WordPress itself

Find out how to back up and secure your content and, when it’s scraped, know what to do to enforce your copyright

Understand disaster recovery and use the best-of-breed tools, code, modules, techniques, and plugins to insure against attacks

Learn fast with this easy-read, jargon-light book jam-packed with copy-paste solutions to suit all levels

Who this book is written for:
Just as WordPress is used by a broad spectrum of website owners, with varying degrees of security know-how, so WordPress 3 Ultimate Security is written to be understood by security novices and web professionals alike. From site and server owners and administrators to members of their contributing team, this essential A to Z reference takes a complex and, let’s face it, frankly dull subject and makes it accessible, encouraging, and sometimes even fun. Even if you are a total newbie to security, you can transform an insecure site into an iron-clad fortress, safeguarding your site users, your content and, sooner or later, your stress level.
