SiteLock© INFINITY™ Patches the Joomla! Contact Form Vulnerability

Joomla! released version 3.9.11 on August 13, 2019, to patch vulnerabilities found within versions 1.6.2 and 3.9.10. This latest security update fixes a vulnerability that allows for mail submission in disabled forms. 

Prior to this patch, it was possible for anyone to submit a mail submission to a form even if it was disabled. Com_contact is activated by default in Joomla! installations. This means any user running Joomla! versions 1.6.2-3.9.10 are affected by this vulnerability. With no contacts established or the functionality is disabled, the plugin should not have the ability to send an email, however, with this particular vulnerability it can still send spam emails.

Security is one of the most important aspects of any website. This is especially true today considering the fact that cybercrime continues to be a serious threat for businesses and users.

Chatbot Security Risks: What you need to know before starting an online chat

What is a chatbot? Put in simple words, a chatbot is a software solution that uses machine learning to have a conversation (or chat as it is called) with another user online. You’ve likely seen these when you visit a website for a bank, or credit card company, a car sales website, or even a software business.

A few seconds after you land on the page, or sometimes upon arrival, a pop-up will appear that says something like “Hi, how can I help you?” or “Is there something you’re looking for?” If you answer the prompt, your chat with the bot will begin. Based on your responses additional prompts may be provided, or you might be redirected to a live representative for more help.
