What is a Website Vulnerability and Why Does it Need to be Patched?

A website vulnerability is a weakness in code that cybercriminals can exploit to gain unauthorized access to your site. SiteLock’s website vulnerability scanner easily detects these weaknesses. Once the website vulnerabilities are identified, our vulnerability patching can automatically fix weaknesses in your content management system (CMS) before cybercriminals exploit them. You can think of it like patching a hole in your wall—if there’s a vulnerability, it is automatically patched and your site remains secure.
