Hi Guys,

I am at my witts end. How can joomla v3 be so vulnverable to attacks?

I upgraded from V2.5.28 to V3.5 then to latest version. Still being attacked by bots. My server has advised me they are going to ban me from further using their server.

How can scripts be uploaded to the server which then send out these spam emails? Is it because of vulnerbilities in joomla V3?

How to stop this?

I have changed passwords for the database, I have changed passwords for all admins of the site. Still these scripts that have been uploaded to my server are able to send mails.

Perhaps time to stop php mail may be the only solution. How do I de-activate php mail sending?


Thank You!!!


I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
