If your website is running on Joomla! Content Management System (CMS) and you haven't applied any critical security releases lately or didnt upgrade to the latest version, please take some time to do that. There are quite a few trivial exploits to the outdated versions of Joomla especially to Joomla 1.5.x, Joomla 1.6, Joomla 1.7 and the versions released before Joomla 2.5.13 and Joomla 3.1.4. An exploit could allow users to inject malicious content into your website that would turn it into a malware trap or phishing hub for the visitors.
This version of Joomla! has long been outdated now. Since December 31, 2012, no security releases or bug fixes are coming up for this version of Joomla and hence it is vulnerable and open to hackers. Infact, most Joomla! sites based on Joomla 1.5.x are being hacked everyday - yours could be the next. We can help your migrate your website to latest and secure release of Joomla! without any data loss. You can learn more about migration and can request a Free Joomla Migration Analysis here.
