Why Would Someone Hack My Website?

It’s a numbers game. You’re an easy fish to fry!

Most hacks/malware aren’t done to major websites. Of course, hackers love to do that, but it takes more work and most of the time be discovered quickly.

On the other hand, your website that’s not actively being managed is easy.

It’s simple to get into and add their malware.

The more websites they add their malware to, the more profitable/successful their efforts will be.

If they hack 1,000 smaller websites, that may be enough for them. Plus, with 1,000 hacked websites, many won’t be discovered and fixed for quite some time vs. only hacking a handful.

You should also know, most of these types of hacks aren’t done on an individual basis. They are automated and require little to no time on their own.

For WordPress specifically, there are bots scouring the web 24/7 looking for WordPress websites that are out-of-date, so they can get in.

So yes, your website is worth the little effort it takes for them.

It’s important to keep WordPress and plugins up to date because these updates close security loop holes.

Stop treating your website and business like a hobby and take it seriously.
