Sony tells us that there is no exact date when the service will be restored. A lot of people are upset but we should also be grateful, this hack was a timely reminder for all of us.
Imagine your site being down for a couple of weeks?
How would that affect your business?
Not only would you be offline but then you’ve got the enormous task of doing a rebuild. Not sure about you but that thought makes me shudder. Is your data safe, being backed up? All that work, effort and money wasted! Oh, plus the expense of a rebuild!
If it can happen to the big boys with their teams of techie types and mega budgets it could happen to you too –
If you don’t keep your website up to date!
Your WordPress Website version is up to 3.1.2
ARE YOU UP TO DATE!
