I have had spamming on my personal site with wordpress, and I had to manually delete some trojan files once. But things seem to be under control and this was not much work.

Hi Andres,

Wordpress is pretty easy to maintain; when new versions come out, you
can use the dashboard and just press "upgrade" and it does it for you.
Security wise, shouldn't be too many issues I think as new versions
come out regularly for any critical bugs.  Note: this is just
csound.sf.net, which I don't think is that well ranked a site compared
to csounds.com.  My thought is that we'll have good security until
proven otherwise.  (Note: I've had wordpress on my personal site for
many years without much issues).

Thanks!
steven
