A Hack a Day Keeps Complacency Away

It hasn’t been very long that I had to rebuild one of my wife’s old blogs because it had been hacked. Well, it happened again. This one was less severe. I was able to find the offending code and delete it without too much fuss. But it reminds me that I need to stay on top of things. When I rebuilt the blog, I of course used the latest version of WordPress. When I checked today, there was a new version waiting and the patch notes mentioned security fixes. Who knows. If I had been checking and updating more often, I might have avoided this. Regardless, I need to make more of a point of checking the old blogs and keeping them up to date. Even an otherwise idle blog needs software updates.
