Joomla Announces Critical New Security Update

The timing for signing up for a Maintenance Agreement couldn’t be more crucial as Joomla announced this week millions of Joomla websites are at risk of hacking from a critical Joomla bug. A researcher at Trustwave Spiderlabs discovered that Joomla versions 3.2-3.4.4 contain a bug that allows full administrative access to any Joomla site. This type of access would allow a hacker to delete pages, block users or even add malicious code into existing pages. With a Maintenance Agreement all Joomla core upgrades and security patches are automatically included in your monthly service  - without one you run the risk of being at the mercy of a hacker.

Good news is that if you are on a Maintenance Agreement we will automatically complete this critical security update on your site. Not on a maintenance agreement? Check out the different plans we offer for every budget and for a limited time sign up for a 3 month maintenance agreement and receive a free upgrade to Joomla 3.4.5. Not ready to commit to a maintenance agreement? Schedule a one time Oil Change  where we upgrade you to the most current version of Joomla and complete our 50 point checklist to ensure your site is running optimally for security, speed, and SEO.

 * free upgrade from Joomla 2.x to Joomla 3.x.  Flat fee for upgrade from Joomla 1.5.
