Why should you WordPress?
WordPress is constantly being updated to allow for functional improvements and fix issues that position your online business at risk. WordPress makes it easy to your site version and plugins. It’s best to your WordPress installation as soon as a fix is released. Otherwise, an older (read insecure) version could be the target of an attack.

WordPress is open source software which means the information is available to the public. Being so publicly appreciated (more than 25% of all websites) the targeting by shady persons or directly harmful “basterds” is done by automated processes. Online is a hacker heaven and an outdated site is a bullseye for an attack, because of a direct connection. It’s not you, it's your outdated WordPress site.

Out there, in the online there are also extremely nice people, who try to by offering solutions to counter these problems. These are the firms, who constantly analyse, compare and warn everybody when a clever intrusion is identified. However, even this is against your outdated WordPress site. Public notices, that a issue was found or resolved makes those few unwanted individuals grow in numbers as they know the process is not instant for all the websites and there is a window of opportunity a few clicks away.
