New registered users unwanted

Postby david613 » Thu Oct 19, 2017 11:58 am

Hello!

I checked the "Users" page in the Administration Panel and found two users which I have no idea from where the can come.

Can somebody explain me how this is possible and what could I do to avoid that problem? :-[

Note: my Joomla version is updated and I didn't add any extensions.

Thank you!

David

I read that post.

It is written that "is a known vulnerability that was fixed in Joomla 3.6.4, you need to update."

My version is 3.8.1.

Shouldn't the problem not appear?

Have you turned off "New User Registration" in the Options of User Manager?

Yngve,

Thank you for your advice.

I did it only yesterday. Is it supposed to be 100% effective?
