Routinely updating WordPress and plugins and modules is absolutely critical. Since the release of WordPress 3.7, all minor security updates for the WordPress core software files are automatically applied to your server without your intervention. However, this does not include major software updates, module updates, or theme updates. These must still be updated manually.
It is recommended that updates be applied on a weekly basis when they become available. Updates are usually a simple 1-click install in the plugin and theme menus. Simply log in to your WordPress site and you will immediately see any pending updates.
