As noted already, WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world, and patches and security solutions are widely available. The issue is, often owners or developers do not keep track of those and neglect to check and implement those quick enough. WordPress community has thought of this as well and has introduced automated theme and plugin updates. This is a great solution but should be used carefully at first given some updates can cause technical issues on websites and it would be advisable to test them.
