Trivial Exploit Threatens Outdated Joomla! Sites

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 There are quite a few trivial exploits to the outdated versions of Joomla especially to Joomla 1.5.x, Joomla 1.6, Joomla 1.7 and the versions released before Joomla 2.5.13 and Joomla 3.1.4.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.
