Failing to keep a WordPress site secure is a recipe for disaster. If the underlying ‘software’ that runs WordPress is not correctly maintained and updated, can become vulnerable to hackers, bots and malware attack. The best way to understand this is to compare WordPress with PC operating system, with an ongoing need for updates, security and patches.WordPress is no different and must be protected from viruses, malware and the activity of website hackers.
