I love WordPress. But WordPress sites are regularly compromised by bad code (and a lack of updates), that's the ugly truth of the situation. In this workshop we'll work to make sure that our code is never the reason that such a thing could happen. We'll start with a discussion of the security essentials for WordPress, and then in WP and PHP code. Then we'll dive into code, auditing and fixing a plugin with real and common security vulnerabilities. At the end, we'll gather back together and talk about what we found and what we missed.

Good look at WP security

This was a very good discussion and workshop on debugging and auditing a plugin for security, especially the best way to harden a plugin in a "Wordpressy" way, for those of us new to WordPress.
Thank you.
