Thought I would put this here as it's not really suitable for JSE but possibly for meta.
If any of you have an account on JoomlArt or know anyone that does, please have a read of the following article:
Their systems have been hacked.
This is now the second popular Joomla extension/template provider I've been notified about that has been hacked recently. The first hacked website was JoomDonation.
So just a warning to all:
- Make sure passwords for FTP, PhpMyAdmin/ cPanel and Joomla Admin account are all very secure and not the same.
- Check your hosting packages and ensure they provide high level security on their server which includes a firewall.
- Take daily database backups
