How secure will Joomla 2.5 in the months to come?

Post by philosopadmin » Thu Jan 08, 2015 11:56 pm

Hi,
I have a site on Joomla 2.5, and was wondering how long I can get away with not upgrading?

I don't need the website to be that secure cause I'm not processing payments or anything serious, can I put of the upgrade to 3.0 for a few months?

Thanks.

You will know the answer to that when you get hacked. It could be months or it could be a few years. Just keep a good backup and be prepared to delete everything on the server if or when you get hacked.
