  • In the last period some hackers attacks affect Joomla and WordPress site’s! It’s seams that some security issues for this two platforms! This update resolve this things for Joomla!?

  • Do You Always Have to Upgrade? Yes and no.

    You should always do security upgrades as soon as possible. These are like car recalls. Security upgrades, also called “security releases,” fix a vulnerability that’s recently been discovered. Once a vulnerability is published, skipping the fix is like leaving your front door open, and announcing it on Facebook.
