    Having said that, I deleted version information .text file and readme.text file.

    Where are placed these files? I don’t see any “readme” file! I missed it or it is hidden?

    Also I deleted setup information file from wp-admin and wp-content folders.

    Again, which folder do you mean? Just to know and delete them too!

    Yes but WP could be much more secure, if its developers want!

    But I think they wish to make advertisement much more than securing their CMS!

    Yes, it’s true! This explains the great number of WP users! They are in most cases kids and teenegers to blog and tell their history!

    Ther are more complicated than WP but also more secure, stable and professional look!

    I found a file in wp-admin. I don’t remember what it exactly called, but it is like readme.text or admin.txt or something along that. It has your version number, date of install, etc. I deleted it long time ago and it has never came back again even after I updated the WP versions. Sorry, I don’t remember what’s the exact name. All the best.

    After your new look, I can’t beleive you ;)!

    Just a joke!

    Sorry. I didn’t get the joke. What’s wrong with the new picture? Am I looking abnormal?

    I started my CMS journey with Drupal and it is still my primary CMS (read – die hard fan). I agree that it is more secure and a better choice for building e-commerce sites. But it doesn’t mean that WP is insecure or not an option for e-commerce sites. Even a Drupal/Joomla site site built by a newbie can be easily hacked. Likewise, a wordpress site built by a professional could be more secure. It all depends on how much you are familiar with the system. Tens of people try to hack my site daily. (See image below). But none of them have cracked it yet. I’ve taken some precautions to prevent those attacks. My host also monitors all those activities and helps to keep my site secured.

    To be a good web developer, one should be perfect with managing network and servers. Then, PHP. Because it is the backbone of all these CMS. A person without the knowledge of these things usually creates an insecure website.

    Finally, option is yours’. Choose whatever you think is better and comfortable.

    I agree with with. But, the question is why WordPress developers don’t make WP more or at least as secure as Drupal and Joomla?

    As I mentioned aboce, I think they are very “proud” of WP and they want to advertise it from a wrong side!

    On other hand, how do you know that those IP want to hack your site?

    They couldn’t be simple visitors? I mean how can we distiguish between simle visitor and hacker if there wasn’t malicious activity on the site?

    You may mean “license.txt” ?

    Most of WP files are in php, little in txt!

    Okay, no bad feelings. I just didn’t get the meaning of your lines. 🙂

    They are making. It is getting better and better on each update. There is a huge difference between the development methodology of Drupal and WordPress. Older versions of Drupal was highly complex for normal users. They were focused more on architecture than the user interface, while WordPress is more end user friendly from the earlier versions. Now, the developers are working on making it more secure, yet not compromising the user experience.

    There is a difference between wordpress.com and wordpress CMS. WordPress.com is a business and WordPress CMS is a community effort. Automattic is advertising wordpress because it makes money out of it. But this is not happening in the case of Aquia. Though they are making money from Drupal consultancy, they don’t host a drupal blog or normal users (like, user.drupal.com). That’s why it seems WordPress is more concerned about it’s publicity. There are hundreds of non-automattic developers spending their precious time for the improvement of the WordPress. That is the strength of open source community!

    Because they’re trying to login as “Admin” (with different password combinations) to get access of my site. Why would a normal user do that? That is just a sample. You can get to know about the difference between normal request and attack if you get full access to your server.

    Well, I think a good CMS would be a combination of both WordPress and Joomla or Drupal to get together an easy interface of WP and high secure level of Drupal or Joomla!

    You are welcome to develop it, then.

    WP is a good CMS, but nothing in life is foolproof, or hacker-proof, or idiot-proof. You have to be cautious and vigilant.

    Since this is the Graphene support forum, I suggest that you take your argument (which is much more about your perceived security inadequacies of WordPress) over to the WordPress support forum where you may find the answers you seek, rather than continue to nitpick really minor points with dedicated WordPress users.

    The WordPress support forum is here:

    http://wordpress.org/support/

    But before you start posting threads similar to what you have posted here (because the mods there will not cut you much slack for not doing your homework), I suggest that you read, study, and take to heart what you will find here:
