I am going to tell you real security problem with wordpress. 1. Many wordpress username is admin. 2. Many idiots keep password like password, consider, mom, papa, daddy,birth date, brother. Most hackers hack wordpress blog just to add their website links to rank high on google.

Locking down wp-admin and wp-login using the SSL code like define ('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true) Can this be done in the site where SSL is installed or can it be used in all the sites?

Hey nirmala! The following code: define (‘FORCE_SSL_LOGIN’, true); will redirect all login attempts from: http://yourdomainname.com/wp-login.php to: https://yourdomainname.com/wp-login.php My advice is to use the code only if you have a valid SSL certificate for your domain name. If you don't have private SSL certificates for your domain names then your browser will display a warning message and inform you that the SSL is not trusted. If you want to protect just the WP admin area use the following code: define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true); You can find the official documentation at: http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Over_SSL
