Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Upgrading extensions, part of Joomla! 3 Essential Training: 2 Modules Components Extensions & Templates.
- In the Jooma! 3 administration video,…I emphasized how critically important it is…to keep your Joomla! installation up to date…with the latest version of Joomla!.…In general, as Joomla! is releasing more and more versions,…many of them are connected to security issues.…Because Joomla! is open source software,…its code base is out there for scrutiny by anybody…and as a result, bugs are found.…When bugs are found, some of them pertain to security…and being able to hack into a website.…
So what you'll find is you'll need to update your Joomla!…website regularly.…Now that we've added these additional third party extensions…this is also something you need to be scrupulous about…updating on a very regular basis.…The Joomla! extensions can provide a way into your website…just as easily as an out of date version of Joomla! can.…Indeed, JCE has had some security holes in it in the past…that people didn't patch with the more recent version of JCE…and they've had sites hacked that way.…
So it's really important that you keep your extensions…
