If someone hacked into your WordPress account and pretended to be you and uploaded a post without your knowledge, would your viewers be able to tell the difference? Well, here is hoping that they can, since our personalities are unique.
For the record, I think that it would be difficult for the imposter to get away with such a task, unless they made an intense study of our personality (Now, I don’t think that anything like that ever transpired on WordPress).
I remembered that a few years ago, a mischievous hacker took possession of some Facebook accounts; what the hacker did was enough to make those Facebook account holders cringe; the hacker decided to post hurtful messages on the walls of the account holder’s friends (Some of the account holder’s friends actually believed that their Facebook friend wrote the hurtful message and others didn’t fall for such deception, because they knew that their friend would never do such a thing).
Hackers are always having themselves a field-day on the internet.
I am happy to be using the WordPress-Hosted version, because it was brought to my attention a few months ago that bloggers who used the self-hosted version of WordPress were prone to hackers (Those who use the self-hosted version of WordPress are responsible for updating their own security and unfortunately, some of them can be very complacent).
Those Happy Engineers have their job cut out for them and so far, they have been doing a great one of keeping unwanted hackers out.
