The risks of not upgrading to Magento 2
There are many risks attached to avoiding a Magento 2 upgrade.
The largest risk that store-owners will take by not upgrading is that of security. With no more security patches available, your store will be vulnerable to malicious software. You could expect:
Server attacks: Your server could be compromised by malware and greatly decrease the functionality of your site.
Front-end attacks: Your store could undergo unwarranted visual alterations.
Payment Capture attacks: Hidden software or malware can be installed to capture private payment information.
Spam attacks: Malware can send out spam email attacks which can result in your site being blacklisted.
It has been widely proven that no site should load in more than 3 seconds. Anything more than this can result in you losing more than half of your traffic. When upgrades cease for Magento 1, loading speeds will continue to increase and that is another reason why it is vital to upgrade to Magento 2.
