Joomla – Major Security Fix in Version 3.4.5
A new Joomla security vulnerability was officially announced by the Joomla Security Strike Team (JSST). It is affecting a large number of users and can easily allow full access to your website and disclosure of all the information in your database. Our recent investigation shows that one-third of the CMS users are affected by the security vulnerability and an immediate update is required to protect your website.
Affected Joomla Versions
The affected versions are between 3.0 and 3.4.4. The Joomla! 3.4.5 is important as it provides a security fix that will ensure your website is protected.
On the 22nd of October, the Joomla project released the 3.4.5 version, which provides a security fix that will keep your website protected. Just 90 minutes after the announcement, third-party projects started publishing information on how to exploit the vulnerability and gain access to Joomla! websites. A very dangerous situation that requires immediate attention.
FastComet recommends that all users start updating their websites in order to avoid any issues. We have already sent out a notification to all Joomla! clients to make sure they stay protected. If you have missed that for some reason, you can easily log into your and contact our technical support. We will be happy to assist you with the upgrade of your website to version 3.4.5 of the CMS.
