WordPress Security Unwrapped

Only 41% of WordPress websites are currently using the latest WordPress version, so what does this say in terms of wordpress security?!

Which means, 59% of WordPress websites are using old, vulnerable versions of the CMS. And this data doesn’t even include all of the outdated plugins or theme updates! A lot of people won’t touch their updates purely because updating can on occasion cause conflictions with other extensions and plugins (but hey – that’s what we’re here for!) 

What does this mean? Well. Software and CMS systems such as WordPress are constantly on the ball, if a vulnerability in the code is found, or a new way of attacking the CMS has been discovered by the many experienced developers at WordPress HQ – the software is updated straight away with the fix – 1 – 0 for website security!

As technology changes month on month and new devices and browser updates are released, it’s important to understand your website needs to grow along with your software. So as you can see, if updates don’t happen you can wave goodbye to a long-term, fully functioning website. One of the easiest ways to prevent your website from being targeted and successfully hacked is by keeping it up-to-date and properly maintained.
