The Many Dangers Lurking in Your Outdated WordPress Site

by Ford Saeks

The internet is full of too-smart people waiting to take advantage of any security vulnerability in your site, gaining access to your information, your email, and making your site deliver malware to anyone who visits it. Once your site has become victim to malware and hacking, it can be a gigantic, costly headache to unravel.

WordPress is one of the largest platforms in the world, making it a constant target for hackers. Luckily for everyone who loves WordPress (like us here at PCG), its development team Automattic is constantly staying on top of threats, vulnerabilities, and common issues. They release updates for core WordPress on a regular basis, and plugin authors tend to follow to make sure their plugin stays compatible with the core installation.

by Ford Saeks

That’s like asking – Do you need to change the oil in your car?

The answer is, your car will run for a while, dirt will accumulate, the filter will clog and the oil will no longer lubricate the pistons as they move up and down. You may notice smoke, clanking sounds, poor gas mileage and lower than desirable performance. Eventually the engine will overheat and fail. A similar occurrence will happen if you do not keep your website up to date.

Fixing something that is broken requires much more time, energy and money than some simple steps of preventative maintenance.

What the Target Data Breach Can Teach Us About Your Website and Online Activity

by Ford Saeks

For the past week, it’s been difficult to browse online news stories, watch the national news or pick up a newspaper without reading or hearing about the Target data breach.  On December 19, the third largest U.S. retailer announced that data from debit and credit cards used within Target stores between November 27 and December 15 had been stolen.  The breach has affected a staggering 40 million shoppers.
