WordPress comes with a built-in code editor which allows you to edit your theme and plugin files. In the wrong hands, this feature can be a security risk.

Change Database Prefix

By default, WordPress uses wp_ as the prefix for all tables in your WordPress database. If your WordPress site is using the default database prefix, then it makes it easier for hackers to guess what your table name is

Password Protect WordPress Admin

Hackers can request your wp-admin folder and login page without any restriction. This allows them to try their hacking tricks or run DDoS attacks.

Disable Directory Indexing & Browsing

Directory browsing can be used by hackers to find out if you have any files with known vulnerabilities, so they can take advantage of these files to gain access.

XML-RPC was enabled by default in WordPress 3.5 because it helps connecting your WordPress site with web and mobile apps. Because of its powerful nature, XML-RPC can significantly amplify the brute-force attacks.

Automatically Log Out Idle Users

Logged in users can sometimes wander away from screen, and this poses a security risk. Someone can hijack their session, change passwords, or make changes to their account.
