3 outdated plugins cause a quarter of WordPress security breaches
Last Update: May 19, 2016
A rather interesting article from Softpedia told me something else I didn't know (one more drop from the ocean of my ignorance). It seems, although the practice is allegedly no longer common, that some theme developers embedded plugins within the code for their themes.
This, of course, makes the usual method of updating plugins unworkable. And any users of those themes in ignorance, presumably. Responsible developers mentioned in the article include ThemeForest and Mojo Themes, although there are others.
The article throws a few stats around and pings the 3 worst plugin offenders. Here's the link:
Another good reason to use the free themes instead of out of date premium themes.
Can't fault that Marion! I used to think I was missing something by not having paid themes. What I overlooked was that the WP free themes are underwritten by WP - that's pretty good comfort!

Thank you, Mike.
An absolute pleasure Kirill.
