Why should I update WordPress?
Just like plugins, the reasons to update your WordPress core are threefold. Security, bug fixes and new features. The most important reason to update software in general is for security. Hackers are constantly looking for exploits and vulnerabilities in WordPress. When security updates are released it’s a good idea to update as soon as possible.
If I don’t secure and keep my site updated, will my WordPress site get hacked?
Probably, eventually. We’ve seen sites go for years without updates and suffer no serious issues. However, we’ve also seen sites get hacked two weeks after a critical security update is released. One popular plugin identified a security flaw at the end of August, 2020. Within 1 week, over 10,000 attacks per hour were identified trying to exploit that flaw.
