and why is it that you cannot update demos?

I understand your frustration but please stop using caps in titles or text. there is no reason for it.
and before claiming things like this how do you know you got hacked through our demo? what version did you have and what additional components or modules except ours did you have

Moving your post here


Maybe you should update demo versions to use latest joomla version and its all on you just demo version no addons of any kind and no you cant update to a newer joomla at my server after you use these demos and instead of helping or updating demo versions you just want to insult my intelligence thats fine no support i see unless you are paying for it which i will not do your product as a demo version for people that cant install is useless so i am warning people that think it easier that way it is not so start from scratch or you will be sorry you cant use hotlink protection you cant use leech protect you cant password protect files so if you use a demo you will regret it.

I know min 5 members that contacted me and asked how to upgrade. I did not charge anyone ,
plus updating instructions for Joomla are posted everywhere. All you need to do is transfer few files which will not affect our templates or modules in no way

http://docs.joomla.org/Upgrading_1.5...g_1.5x_version

again stop claiming things that are not true , we help anyone no matter if customer or not and I know that more than few will confirm this.
I do not see any pricing set for upgrades or any post where we said that we charge for such help

and most important , demos are for your evaluation and instruction use , we sell templates not demos . you get them actually for free . if you get hacked through our template than I would take full responsibility but demo and joomla installation is all you

And here is the fastest way to upgrade , the only bug that was discovered and affecting all these installations is in 1 file

and here is how to secure your site

Go to your existing joomla installation

open this file

/components/com_user/models/reset.php

After global $mainframe; on line 113 of reset.php, add:

Code:

if(strlen($token) != 32) {
	$this->setError(JText::_(INVALID_TOKEN));
	return false;
}

hit save and that is it!

traderrays,
Sorry to hear youve been hacked.
But...
This has nothing to do with YouJoomla.
YouJoomla do not have responsibility of Joomla security issue.

When you use Joomla, its your responsibility to check Joomla.org
frequently or join Joomla.org newsletter if there is one.

IMHO, even Joomla do NOT have responsibility about this since
Joomla is free and you use it at your own risk.

Joomla.org posted security issue and gave solution for it on 14th, August.
Neo Posted about it 6 days ago.

What more can YouJoomla and Joomla can do?

Its not just Joomla.
There is NO 100% secure site.

Ive been hacked before and I do know its %^$%!
Even right now, I have one server off-line due to hacking.
Its been hacked into and sent tons of phishing emails
and hosting co. turned it off with few hundred sites on it.
Luckily, they are all my adsense sites. So, only damage is
losing some income for few days.

But, what can you do? All you can do is keep backup
and start over using your backup.

When things like this happen, there isnt anyone to blame except hacker.
Not you, your host, Joomla, YouJoomla...
Just consider its your Karma and move on.
