  3. Social security numbers
  4. Banking information & credit card data

When looking for new websites to target, a typical hacker will try to find sites which will require as little effort as possible for them to breach. Ideally they are looking for sites that are running outdated versions of frameworks such as Magento and WordPress, which may be missing critical security patches.
