Blog security

I have not given a thought to ensuring a level of security for my registration information for this blog until I read a post by one of the WordPress team.

As I rarely ever operate outside the closed network at home base, I have my computer configured for ease of personal access.  I don’t use other people’s machines, internet cafes or the like to access my personal sites.  I certainly would never consider accessing any of my financial institutions on a public terminal.

I read with interest about ticking the right boxes in the following WordPress Announcement in order to protect your blog from hackers.

Only last week a friend had his site (a WordPress upgraded number) hacked and effectively destroyed by someone who was deliberately targeting him.  He missed that security notice…. I wonder how many others have as well.
