IntenseDebate comment system safe to use? (2 posts)

    Hey guys, I recently posted on here that my wordpress site was hacked 6 times. After following the steps posted on here, I'm now running a clean installation which has been fine for over 4 days now. We've started installing plugins again, only those that have a high download and rating count.

    I was told on here that the SQL injection attacks we were getting could have been done through a comment form on the site. Because of this, we disabled comments completely on our site and removed the comments template from our theme files. We used to get a lot of comments on our site so we would like to have a comment form of some sort. I was looking at http://www.intensedebate.com - Is it safe to use this? or could hackers still inject SQL through it?

    Thanks :)

    I have a very hard time believing that there would be any large issues with using intensedebate, it's an Automattic-owned property, so it definitely stays up to date with any potential security fixes

    I would safely assume it's something else on your site
