WordPress enables users to write their own plugins or use the plugins coded by other developers on their website. You might be using the latest version of WordPress or a strong password for the admin panel. But any vulnerability in one single plugin might compromise your website against attackers. Therefore, use trusted sources when you download a plugin (wordpress.org). If a normally paid plugin is offered for free, this plugin probably has a backdoor. Also, make sure that the plugin is updated.
You can easily check the vulnerability of the plugins on your WordPress with our free and online WordPress Plugin Scanner tool. To do this, you can start by typing your domain name in the form on top of the page and start scanning.
Or you can remotely check them by using open-source code tools such as wpscan, cmsscan. These tools will provide you with a report as if your website is attacked.
