If you’re using an old version of Joomla, make sure that you update your site now.
Joomla’s security team has just released a new version to update a critical remote command execution vulnerability that affects CMS versions 1.5 to 3.4. If you don’t patch your CMS immediately, this vulnerability can be easily exploited by hackers.
