Building a website is often about taking advantage of useful widgets and plugins to beef up the user experience. But sometimes, certain plugins fade out of popularity and are no longer active. Keeping these outdated plugins can be a major risk to website security because they no longer receive updates from the developer. Hackers have scripts that are specifically designed for deactivated plugins and can obtain unauthorized access to your website through these unpatched entry points. Perform a thorough sweep of your site to make sure any and all vulnerabilities are taken care of before it’s too late.
