I lost $500 to crypto miners thanks to WordPress security vulnerability

Crypto miners hacked my AWS account, created pleanty of EC2 instances and Lambda functions, and started mining. I have no idea how much Bitcoin, Ethereus or other cryptocurrencies they mined, but my bill is $500 I will have to pay to Amazon AWS. For the security leak, I partially blame myself and partially WordPress. Turned oput that they first hacked my WordPress web page, got an AWS access key and then got to AWS account. After the incident I decided that the days of me using WordPress for a blog (personal web page) are over and it’s time to move to some static page CMS. Like Jeklyll!
