We cannot stress the importance of diligently upgrading to the latest version of MODX enough. While no software is 100% secure, powering your site with the most current version usually helps protect you from hackers that rely on exploiting outdated software. If you’re not sure what version of MODX Evolution you’re running, login to your website Manager and it should be in the upper right hand corner—possibly left, if extremely old.
