While websites don’t wear out, they do exist in a dynamic environment. Browsers are updated, security flaws are discovered, Internet protocols change, etc. Updating your software is the best protection against malware, and the only way to get new features and better performance.

The vast majority of hackers break into your site through old software.

WordPress and plugin authors update their software to solve this (as well as to add new features). That’s the great news. The bad news is someone has to keep up with these things. Despite WordPress websites having the tools for maintenance and updates, very few people really want to look after it.
