Joomla 3.7.4 released has released the latest update in the Joomla 3 series. Joomla 3.7.4 is the latest security update. Just in case you missed it, Joomla 3.7.4 was released on July 26 that fixes the CMS installer application. The installer application lacked a process to verify the users ownership of a webspace, potentially allowing users to gain control.

We recently updated our blog discussing the Joomla 3.7 release. If you have not yet updated to Joomla 3.7 read the update instructions first.

Note: Before updating to Joomla 3.7.4 please make sure you are running at least Joomla 3.7 and any extensions are updated first.

You can apply the patch via the Joomla updater in the administrator area of your site, or navigate to Components -> Joomla If your site requires  extension updates there will be a notification upon login to the Joomla Administration Panel.

Clients who are on our monthly maintenance plans will have their sites done automatically.

How do I tell what version of Joomla is running?

Generally, when you login to the Administrator Panel the Joomla version will be displayed in small print at the bottom of the screen. Alternatively  navigate to the help menu and select Joomla Help. On the left hand side you will see a menu with Latest Version Check.

Can I wait?

Hackers will likely be aware of vulnerabilities within specific Joomla versions. At that point, they'll start looking for Joomla sites to compromise.

Thanks to Joomla's announcement, you have a head start. But, it's not big enough for you to stall. It's essential that you update right away at its release.

Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 sites

Sites running Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 are no longer supported and therefore vulnerable to attack. Please contact us if you are still running a Joomla 1.5 or 2.5 website and need help upgrading.
