Open source software, such as WordPress, Drupal and Magento are constantly developing their platforms, making enhancements and introducing additional security features. They are continuously testing and checking code in the core software and additional modules/plugins for security vulnerabilities - all of which is good news; however, it is an unfortunate fact of the modern internet, that it is plagued by both people and automated systems constantly scanning websites for security holes, including yours - if your website is not up to date with the latest security patched code, your website is vulnerable and at risk of exploit.
Remember - within 24 hours of release of an Open Source security patch, hackers will have developed software to scan for that vulnerability - your website needs maintaining to protect it from these vulnerabilities to the best level possible.
Website Maintenance Packages
Every website is a target for a hacker, don't assume they wouldn't want to attack your website - too small? - Wrong! If your website is not regularly updated, they will catch up with you!
When Drupal, WordPress and Magento release security updates they must be applied in a timely manner.
Malicious Activities Could Include:
Turning your website into a spamming engine which could result in your domain name being blacklisted due to your website sending out thousands of unsolicited email, often containing content of a dubious nature.
Inserting text and links or images of a pornographic/offensive nature into your website
Deleting some of your content or even your entire website
Re-directing your visitors to another website, this means any visitors to your website will be automatically forwarded to a different website, most likely containing offensive content.
