    Advance happy new year to everyone! :)

    I would like to ask if how exploit/vulnerable a website is from hacking and for someone to manipulate a data.

    and what are the ways to keep it clean and safe.


    thanks for the information

    The link you provided is not a wordpress script. It's a script that you install and it runs on a linux-based server.

    I've not read through the install script nor the actual ddos script that your link installs, but you should of course be careful about blindly installing these things if you don't know what they are doing or how they work. If you can install from a trusted source, for example the core repository for your flavor of linux, then you can have more reassurance that it is safe to use.

    Security depends entirely on the server and the various softwares/scripts in use. It involves more than adding more software and plugins. A huge chunk of my web admin time is spent on security, monitoring, etc -- and not as much times as I would like on the content of the sites themselves.

    Not enough info to give any advice.

    I've recently read 'Essential PHP Security by Chris Shiflett' and believe my code will be a lot more secure because of it. Would defintely recommend learning to code properly using whatever language you go for and it seems avoiding shared hosting and lesser-quality hosting providers is a big thing, too.
