Has your WordPress site been hacked recently?

If you’re using WordPress as your favorite open source blogging platform, chances are pretty high you’ve already heard about the recent security flaw found in the TimThumb plugin fow WP. If you haven’t – you should, cause it’s pretty severe. Here is more info on that:

The security flaw isn’t a core WordPress vulnerability, so you won’t be vulnerable for just using WordPress. However, the bad news is that a pretty big number of themes out there use the TimThumb plugin in order to operate correctly and therefore TimThumb is included in a lot of WordPress plugins and themes, both free and paid. The result is that there is a good chance you might have the vulnerable TimThumb installed and running on your WordPress even if you don’t really know about it or you don’t care.

Joomla 1.7 stable is out…and we are ready for it!

The new major Joomla version 1.7 is already released and we are happy to announce that just a few days later all our Joomla services have been tested and confirmed to work flawlessly with the new version:

  1. SiteGround Joomla hosting is ready for v1.7 and updated joomlas run flawlessly on our servers
  2. The Joomla templates designed by SiteGround are fully compatible with Joomla 1.7
  3. The Joomla extensions developed by SiteGround are fully compatible with Joomla 1.7

Joomla 1.7 review

The first stable version of the Joomla 1.7 branch was released on July 19th. This came only 6 months after Joomla 1.6 was released. The short period was really amazing, having in mind that the previous two transitions to the next major version took the Joomla team 3 years each. However, the promise on the official Joomla website is that from now on we should expect a new major version on each 6 months! We are excited about this news, especially because we saw some real steps in making the transition to the new versions much easier than they previously were.
