Why Does WordPress Need To Be Updated?

WordPress is very popular for good reason; it’s easy to use, there’s a huge community of developers and designers creating solutions for it and it’s very flexible. According to WordPress.org, WordPress powers 23% of all websites on the Internet. Much like operating systems like Microsoft’s Windows require updates to patch security holes, increase functionality, or fix bugs, WordPress and the plugins that extend its functionality must be updated from time to time for the same reasons.
