If you have a blog then you need to know how to protect your blog from hacking. Not everyone is a computer guru. But it is a lot of basic common sense that is needed to do this effectively.
Some of the basic rules of computer uses should apply to the protection of blogs. Regardless of the type of software that you are using, you should keep it updated.
Whether you are using WordPress or a different platform for your blog, you need to keep it updated at all times. To further protect yourself, you should never have the version you are using, displayed on your blog. Things happen in life and you may not get the latest update as soon as it was available. It is not tragic but if your version is displayed, it is like having a sign visible to all hackers. The purpose of updates is to often patch vulnerabilities.
