Last week, Joomla! released version 3.8.13 which included five security updates for the 3.x series of Joomla!. All five of the vulnerabilities addressed are part of the Joomla! application core. Although all of the vulnerabilities are considered low priority, Joomla! is encouraging users to update their applications as soon as possible to avoid possible compromise as a result of them being exploited. The vulnerabilities below were addressed:
Joomla! notes that while version 3.8.x is no longer in active development as they prepare to release Joomla! 3.9, they have opted to release these security fixes now allowing website owners to check extensions and themes before upgrading to the newest full version.
