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.
