Just recently, security vendor Sucuri disclosed a severe "Content Injection Vulnerability" in the WordPress REST API that allows remote unauthorized hackers to modify the content of any page or post within a WordPress web site as well as privilege escalation that could affect millions of web sites worldwide.
Since 2014, Google has been ranking HTTPS powered websites more favourably. But that wasn't enough for most website owners to switch their sites to the secure web, and the vast majority of websites still run over the insecure HTTP protocol.
But that should be set to change. From January 31st 2017, Google Chrome will start marking sites that collect sensitive information as 'non-secure'.
