Avoid Being Hacked! Update Your Joomla!® 1.5 installation!

Avoid Being Hacked! Update Your Joomla!® 1.5 installation!

Since the beginning of the year, we have been seeing an increase in hack attacks coming from abroad (Russia, Turkey and Brazil). The new year came in with a Brazilian team wreaking havoc on Word press installations now we have an increase i attacks on old Joomla installations. So be vigilant and update frequently.

Tips on Staying safe from hack attacks:

  • Update your core Joomla installation and Components to their latest versions.
  • Enable SEF URLs, to prevent URL manipulations.
  • Uninstall JC Utilities, and disable tinyMCE WYSIWYG editors.
  • Protect your admin section by installing Admin Tools
  • Read the Joomla Security Releases: Joomla Security Documentation
