An Ounce of Prevention…

WordPress continues to be an extremely popular platform worldwide. Some fun statistics:

  • Almost 16 million websites use WordPress
  • WordPress accounts for 50-60% of the global CMS (Content Management System) market
  • WordPress powers 28% of the entire internet

The only problem is that WordPress is becoming a bit of a victim of its own success. Hackers are well aware of the popularity of the platform, and know that they can do the most amount of damage by targeting it.

It is vital that your WordPress version is kept up to date, as that is the only way you can ensure that your site has the latest security features. Plugins also have to be updated, as most of the hacks that we see are because of vulnerabilities within plugins, not WordPress itself. But be careful! Simply updating everything can actually cause your site to go down. Some plugins aren’t compatible with WordPress updates and, unless you back your site up before completing an update, it’s possible that your entire site will become unresponsive.
