So many of the sites on the internet now are CMS (Content Management Sites) this makes it easy for the owner to add content and update the web site.
But as all things do the internet changes and like the real world, what was fine yesterday is now not fine today.
Changes in server platforms will require the owner to update the web site, generally this will be for security reasons. When this happens the web site might also need updating to avoid intrusion.
Generally updates are provided by the CMS provider or if your web site has plugins or modules by the author of the extension. But the actual updating of the website is down to the owner. Most CMS web site intrusions are down to the website owner not keeping the website up to date.
