In my experience hacker jerks go after WordPress sites in one of two different ways:
I never understood why they'd bother hitting a local business' site. Then last month a lot of major sites went down (fyi, a video stupid auto plays) and it's possible the first type of wp hacker helped. A very high level explanation:
Like I said, super high level. That is the extent of my hacking/malware/ddos knowledge.
But the second type of wp hacker jerk, who has scripts to search around for specific holes in web apps or themes, I don't get the why. Why flood a site with garbage? Why try to bring down this local business' web presence? Sit down, you're ruining the internet for the rest of us.
