Software Outdated Warnings

One of the most common causes for website compromises and malware attacks are due to outdated (and vulnerable) web software.

Every software has bugs, but some of these bugs can lead to security vulnerabilities. As a webmaster, you always have to keep your sites updated and follow the best security practices to avoid a compromise.
