    I am unsure about the security of my blog. What are the chances of my blog getting hacked? Which is the best security WP plugin? I remember when i activated like wp firewall plugin and it did not allow me to edit my theme.. gave warnings... I also want to retain BACKUP, how should i do that? should regularly download files from hosting? which folder? or there must be a plugin for that also?

    ^ The above is pretty much what I do too, plus good security on machine's you use to access your blogs/websites (i.e your home computer). Latest version of your favorite virus scanner. I use Avast.

    also you wound want to redirect your wp-admin page to something else, so whenever someone type yoursite.com/wp-admin, he would be redirected to 404 not found page. There was someone who can do this on fiverr. Not sure now..

    Don't use bad warez/p2p themes, because a lot of them include malicious codes

    Use Login Lockdown plugin to secure your wordpress login page.

    Also the Bulletproof Security plugin should be used.
