It has come to our attention that the mosMedia Component can, under certain circumstances, allow a hacker to gain access to your website.
This email is being sent to all mosMedia Customers who purchased through http://www.phil-taylor.com
and relates to several possible security holes in mosMedia component. As you may be aware, certain hackers are attempting to hack many Joomla websites through custom components.
We have attempted to contact the original author of the component yesterday but we have to now received no contact back from him. Phil-Taylor.com only sell this component from their site on behalf of the original developer, we are not responsible for thedevelopment, quality of the code or the support of the product.
We suspended sales of mosMedia while we tried to contact the author - we have still had no luck contacting him
As an added valuable service to those mosMedia customers who purchased through our website (http://www.phil-taylor.com
) we are happy to release a non-official mosMedia 1.0.8 security patch to mosMedia 1.0.8 that resolves the know security issues. The patch download has been made public so other mosMedia customers who have purchased from the original author can also benefit.
If you have mosMedia 1.0.8 installed you should download our mosMedia 1.0.8 security patch and FTP the files into place, the mosMedia 1.0.8 security patch file contains nested directories so you can work out where the files need to go. There is no version number change as we are not the developers of mosMedia we cannot change the version number - but mosMedia 1.0.8 security patch should prevent you getting hacked through mosMedia files.
Please read about other components that may be hackable at our website’s Blog/Latest News http://blog.phil-taylor.com/
