Welcome geronimo. I have a question right off the bat: Why don't people understand that they need to keep software that runs on servers on the internet updated to avoid getting hacked? Not that I am complaining, but it is easier to fix a hacked website and server BEFORE it gets hacked.

Hello jarledb. People are lazy and in 99% of cases no one think that personally his site gonna be hacked. People forget that hacking isn't just personal it's also technical.
