Rash Of Joomla Hacks (january 2007)

Recommended Posts

FYI: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,133517.0.html

 

There is mention of a cpanel vulnerability, but I don't know if that's the reason for these attacks ... if it is, I'm sure we're not to worry, as TCH would have applied any cpanel patch the moment it was released. :) :thumbup1:

 

Any idea what could be going on here?

 

Here is a link to the Joomla Security forum:

 

http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/board,267.0.html

 

Lots of good info there...

Thanks for the info kj. Now I'm getting more paranoid than I already am! :)

You and me both. I'm hoping Thomas or some other crack TCH'er will come in here and explain what's going on and either let us know we're good or that we need to follow those 'install hardening' guidelines presented in the Joomla forum.

Well, I've followed pretty much most of them anyway. About all one can do is go with what the Joomla! pro's suggest and create backups...just in case!
