Update your Wordpress... or else!


Wordpress released a new version on 12/18 and it has a handful of new features which are nice, but not the main point. A description of those features can be found on this SEJ article: http://www.searchenginejournal.com/wordpress-4-1-now-available-heres-whats-new/122286/The real reason to update is because hackers are always looking for those sites that are a little behind so that known vulnerabilities can be taken advantage of. Just the day before the update, Google blacklisted 11,000 wordpress domains because of a rapidly spreading malware. Nothing will kill visitors faster than a big red WARNING: UNSAFE SITE splash page and by the time you undo it, it may be too late.
