Important and critical Joomla 3.4.5 update

Important and critical Joomla 3.4.5 update

This is an important announcement as I have noticed some of your sites are still not updated to the latest release yet. If you are using any versions of Joomla prior to 3.4.5, please do update to 3.4.5 as soon as possible.

This update addresses critical security vulnerability and I really do not want to see any of our customer's site getting hacked or vulnerable to attackers. If you haven't done so yet, please remember to hit the "Update" button when you login to your control panel.

More information about the security issues addressed:

  • High Priority - Core - SQL Injection (affecting Joomla 3.2 through 3.4.4) 
  • Medium Priority - Core - ACL Violations (affecting Joomla 3.2 through 3.4.4) 
  • Medium Priority - Core - ACL Violations (affecting Joomla 3.0 through 3.4.4)

Ssnobben... I think this was intended more as a critical reminder to some rather than just an announcement of the announcement(!). It seems that whilst helping us users out with all our forum requests, the team are noticing installations that remain out of date even days after the critical update... and so they are moving to protect those that even now haven't acted yet.

Hey ssnoben,

Andy has spoken our minds yet again :)

We initially did not want to send this update because everyone seems to be already doing this and if we do it, it would seem redundant. But while we were debugging a lot of Joomla sites through our forums, we noticed that many of you guys are still running on 3.4.4 and most of you are actually prone to these attacks.
