One of the ways to solve this problem is to hide the WordPress version of your site and always keep the site updated.

Change database prefix database
In the old versions of WordPress, there is no option to change the table prefix, but the table prefix can be changed at the time of installation in the current version. In WordPress, the Wp_ table prefix is provided by default. If you are an expert then you can change manually. If new, you can use a database change plugin such as Change Db Prefix. In this case, remember that using this plugin you can change once. However, if you do not use more than 10 letters, it will slow down your site.
