Joomla Security Breach: Can Synergy Infosec’s Joomla Scan Help?


November 2, 2020


Joomla is a free service that helps you create small to medium-sized business websites, though it is often a target for many hackers. Joomla is incredibly common. This open-source content management system can quickly become the target of hackers. In fact, according to Joomla, a security incident breach exposed thousands of users’ personal information. Joomla states that potential data affected may be the disclosure of your full name, business address, business email address, business phone number, company URL, nature of the business, password, IP address, and newsletter subscription information.


Joomla states that many of the negative impacts of the breach are low. Joomla notes there is a potential for low has implications due to financial loss, reputation damage, discrimination, identity theft, and any other economic impacts. Though most of the negative impacts stated are low, Joomla does state that limitations of data subject rights are of medium risk and loss of control over data is of high risk.

Suppose you are looking for ways to fix your Joomla site; you may be presented with a confusing online action list or disaster relief options offered by Joomla.
