I'm feeling a little confused now. I've been using Moodle very successfully with my classes for about a year now and I love using it and my students seem to be doing very well.
Today I got a mail from my university telling me that Moodle is probably not safe, and possibly illegal....Because if any students' personal information gets leaked out the president of the university would be responsible.
Than I read an article this morning about how 70% of all wordpress sites are hacked within the first 12 months. I spent over 6 months of free time to create an ok looking website/blog that I'm currently working on and the thought of this terrifies me. To work so hard and than have it hacked and destroyed...
I'm very paranoid and frustrated. Is it possible for someone to hack the moodle server for our classes and get personal info? And what if the student use user names instead of real names and not post any personal information?
Can someone better inform me? It seems this is beyond my comprehension
Thank you and god bless!
