TO KEEP YOUR SITE SECURE
Due to its popularity (outlined above) WordPress is the most hacked CMS of them all. Considering it has 60% of the market share, this should not be a surprise. The majority of hacked WordPress websites are because the core software, themes or plugins are out of date which leaves the site vulnerable for exploitation. Also compatibility problems can occur when your core WordPress files are updated but your theme or 3rd party plugins are not. Most developers will react when a new WordPress version is released and provide a new version of the theme or plugin. If you don’t follow suit then you could be looking at compatibility issues which can affect your site.
