WordPress Security Issues
It’s important to note that only 41% of WordPress websites currently using the latest version of WordPress.
Why does that matter?
This means 59% of WordPress websites are using old, vulnerable versions of the CMS. This data doesn’t even include all of the many outdated plugins or theme updates! Many website owners won’t touch their updates because of fear and because updating can occasionally cause conflicts. These conflicts can often occur with other extensions or plugins.
What does this all mean?
WordPress itself is being constantly updated and if a vulnerability in the code is found somewhere, or a new way of attacking the CMS has been discovered by the WordPress community the software is updated and your site is notified that an update is available. This is the same with WordPress plugins, the site is notified that updated plugin versions are available for installation.
Technology is constantly changing, updates and security hacks are regularly released, so it’s important to understand that your website also needs to be kept up to date with the latest security measures.
