The Panama Papers – someone did not update their Plugins!

As most of us have heard, in the last few weeks a serious information breach occurred at the law firm of Mossack Fonseca (MF), the Panamanian law firm at the centre of what the media has called “The Panama Papers”.

I realize that you likely don’t manage over 11 million documents of confidential financial information for world leaders and global criminals, but having your website hacked is not something you want to deal with, no matter what type of business you are in.

So, the key message here is to stay on top of your WordPress and plugin versions – it only takes a few minutes a week, and the risks of not doing so can be devastating.
