Security in Wordpress

I read an article about common WordPress malware Infections and decided to do a summary


Original article from Smashing Magazine

It is a good, relevant and long article... In a nutshell:
  • You can trust Wordpress core and need to keep up with updates (do upgrades as frequently as you can)
  • You can not trust all plugins, you need check how secure, mature and professional they are

There is no real compare, but this is a big difference Wordpress has with Drupal. Drupal's community takes care of the security of core and its modules.
