Why are people looking for vulnerabilities?

There are many people that look for vulnerabilities in plugins and themes. Fortunately, many of these people disclose this information to the companies that build the plugins so they can fix and patch the security hole. Usually, at least 30 days are given to the developers before the fault is disclosed publicly.
There are two kinds of people that look for vulnerabilities - those that want to exploit them and those people who want to protect themselves and others from being exploited.

Why are there security flaws in software?

There are many reasons why a flaw can appear in a plugin or a theme. It can be due to simple mistakes, misleading documentation, lack of experience working with WordPress code, or a ton of other reasons. Many plugins also use 3rd party libraries for different tasks, and it could be here that a security flaw exists.

Many times this problem can be alleviated by keeping your plugins up to date. Still, there are also cases where a vulnerability is made public even before the developers have a chance to know about it and create a fix.
