Hackers Find Fresh WordPress Sites Within 30 Minutes

Sneaky, Certificate Transparency is an open standard that allows the online community to monitor SSL certificates that have been issued to websites. This can enable hackers to attack while installing your new fresh WP-site.

I can't believe, that fresh WP - sites are so unprotected from hackers attack! I don't want my WP researchpaperwritings.net/ page to be hacked, what should I do?

This applies only brand new sites and SSL. I have compiled a simple checklist on my blog. Once this is done you are just fine. Feel free to check it out. :-)
