In the last 12 months, I’ve had three clients with WordPress blogs get hacked into. In every case, the WordPress version had become outdated. So if you see a little message like this when you log into your WordPress Dashboard:
Don’t ignore it, just hit the “Please update now” link and follow the instructions.
WordPress may release updates every month, or every few months, so be sure to log into your blog at least monthly to check for a new version number.
Prevent hacking and viruses – keep your WordPress Blog updated!Jill
