Comment (by mnelson4):

 FYI [https://wordpress.org/news/2007/03/upgrade-212/  WordPress.org has
 been hacked in the past].

 decentralization/ Matt Mullenweg himself said]:

 > As a weblogging community we should be heading away from centralization
 as a rule, not flocking to every free or low-cost centralized service that

 > Realistically, anyone can be hacked...

 That was a different situation and a different time, but it's similar
