Backup first then update WordPress
For goodness sake…
As I encounter more and more of my client’s sites getting hacked, I feel the urgency to write an article about why you should be updating the WordPress platform as all updates are released. Actually this goes for plugins as well.
The onslaught of ill-willed hackers disrupting the businesses of others is mind boggling, but rather than belabor their sinfulness, I will focus on being proactive in building up an armory against them.
