What is a vulnerable Joomla! extension?

A vulnerable Joomla! extension has security flaws which leave your site open to malicious attacks.

To protect yourself:

  • Joomla! maintains a searchable database of vulnerable extensions: https://vel.joomla.org/
  • Keep your extensions updated
  • Remove any extensions you aren’t using on your site
  • Make use of the Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED). All extensions have user reviews and ratings
