I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had clients and students reach out and tell me how fearful they are to perform updates on their websites.
The biggest reason it’s important to stay on top of your WordPress updates is security.
Hundreds of websites are hacked every single day. The #1 way in which hackers are able to accomplish this is from outdated plugins + themes. They find a vulnerability (think secret back door) in the code of a particular piece of software that keeps your website running and they create code to gain access to your website.
I personally think there’s a special place for these hackers to go to once their souls are finished on this earth but that’s not for me to decide! We’ll let the universe and karma to take care of that, right?
In order to keep your website free from hackers, you need to keep your plugins and themes updated.
