Got Joomla security problems? Well, I hope not! But Joomla recently deprecated version 1.5.x. That means they no longer support that version. This also means that if you are still using version 1.5, then you will likely not know about any security vulnerabilities until they strike your website.
A wise man told me many years ago, “The only dumb question is one that is never asked.” It’s okay not to know simple things. Ask and you will receive, right? In order to find your Joomla version number, go to your admin section (any page) and scroll to the bottom. The current version number should be there.
You need to discuss how you’re going to handle potential Joomla security problems before they bite you.
For instance, the following is from www.Linux.com:
<meta name=”generator” content=”Joomla! 1.5 – Open Source Content Management” />
Oh, for shame, Linux! You’re still using an outdated version of Joomla for your website. One can hope they fix that before any more Joomla security problems strike version 1.5.x, because Joomla is no longer any help on such issues. No more security patches for that version.
All the other Joomla websites I checked did not have the version number listed. Good for Joomla. That will make the hackers work a bit harder.
Some sites will reveal more information by typing in “/administrator” right after the URL to get the Joomla admin log-in page. Some versions have a different Joomla banner graphic. The site, www.usjoomlaforce.com, currently has this problem. All other sites I checked had blocked this behaviour.
If you have Joomla security problems, like a site that has been hacked or defaced, Joomla gives a list of recommendations to put an immediate stop to the problem and to ensure that it doesn’t come back to bite you again. Some hackers add back doors to their hacks so that, even after cleaning, the hacker can still get into your site to do damage. Here’s Joomla’s help on this:
Don’t let Joomla security problems get out of hand.
