IS YOUR WEBSITE VULNERABLE?

If your site uses a CMS like Joomla or wordpress it is important to keep this software up to date to prevent security flaws that enable hackers to gain entry.

The Joomla! project has announced the end of life for Joomla 2.5 on Dec 31, 2014. That means all Joomla 2.5 websites will not receive any updates including bugs and security updates.

If you’re on version 2.5.x then now is the perfect time to upgrade and move to the latest version of Joomla. If you are planning to start a new Joomla site, we recommend to choose Joomla 3 it's more stable, secure and much easier to use.


Wordpress updates are often and very important in protecting your website. With two recent security updates this month alone its always best to either update regularly or contact us regarding a maintenance plan where we can maintain updates and security patches for your website at a discounted rate.

If you are still on an older version of Joomla or Wordpress then you are at a high risk and need to update immediately!


If you would like to make any changes or simply update your website to keep it secure please contact us regarding any changes to your website software.
