Keeping your website up to date with the latest core code and plugins is really important and can spare you the torment of your site being hacked or hijacked. If you don’t login to your site regularly it’s easy to miss an update and run the risk of a hacker taking advantage of a security hole in your site. Don’t think that just because your site isn’t a ‘big’ one it won’t be targeted, any WordPress site is a target for hackers. Around 90% of the websites I maintain for clients have some kind of attempted unauthorised login every week!!
In addition to updating your plugins, I’ll install security software on your site to guard it against malware and brute force attacks.
