    Exclamation !!URGENT!! ALL 1.5 JOOMLA USERS PLEASE READ

    There have been a number of members that have had their Joomla 1.5 based websites hacked.

    The Edugeek package is created using the current version of Joomla available at the time. So when security updates are released your installation will become out of date and vulnerable to any security holes that have been discovered by the Joomla developers.

    To update your site to the current most secure version please go to the website below and download and install the required files needed to update your Joomla install to the most current version.

    If users update their sites as soon as they can after a security patch comes out then it would be an issue. Also subscribe to the joomla security announcements rss feed. there are simple steps to keep joomla websites secured.
