Insecure Word Press website....

Where we found it:
Outdated software: https://sitecheck.sucPHP/7.1.33
 WARNING: PHP 7.1.33 is end of life (no updates)
Bad for a website consulting firm .... Re:

User Enumeration
The first two user ID's were tested to determine if user enumeration is possible.

Username   Name
ID: 1   sabev   sabev
ID: 2   testuser   test user
It is recommended to rename the admin user account to reduce the chance of brute force attacks occurring. As this will reduce the chance of automated password attackers gaining access. Take note that if the author archives are enabled it is usually possible to enumerate all users within a WordPress installation.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
