Does the use of SSL protect me against hackers?

SSL certificates protect the communication between website visitors and web servers. All data transferred between the web server and browsers is encrypted and protected against unauthorized access.

SSL certificates therefore protect the data traffic but not your websites. It is therefore in your best interest to keep your website installations up to date and regularly install updates of your CMS, e.g. Wordpress or Joomla, as well as any plug-ins, etc.
