You can use JM-Credits instead of Colophon. JM-Credits doesn't have that vulnerability and is much more configurable than Colophon.

I hope you like it! ;)
My Extensions: JM-Recommend, JM-Credits, JM-Link Us (for J! 1.0.x). Find them in the 3rd Party Extensions Forum.

Re: [ABANDONED] Joomla Colophon

Colophon is now in version 1.3.1 which includes fixes for the vulnerabiilities listed as well as some other updates.  Site, which was NEVER 'defaced' BTW,  is now back up and is in the process of being fully restored.

I have not abandoned this project or the other works at SchoolastechWorks, which include BadWords2 and I hope to get back on my feet after a extremely trying string of personal hardships and two tragic losses.

I'd appreciate it if the mods would update the listing as appropriate.
