Having a independent web site and managing one in this area is not necessarily a picnic. After several hacking attempts on my little old web site, I had to employ the services of WordFence, essentially a firewall for WordPress websites. Here is the latest report from them on intrusion activity from February 21 to February 28, 2017
As you can see, during a 7 day period there were almost 500 attempts to log into or obtain access to my site from the top 10 countries blocked. Why, to primary use my site as a launch pad for attacks on other websites.
