Typically used for WordPress users. When a WordPress user is hijacked it means that the attacker was able to gain access (via guessing the password or stealing the HTTP cookie) and take over the session of a WordPress user, thus having full control of the user and can do anything that the user has permissions to do. In most cases the victim is not affected directly hence he or she won’t noticed that the account was hijacked.
