Joomla! 3.7.5 released

Post by pe7er » Thu Aug 17, 2017 9:15 pm

Joomla! 3.7.5 is now available. This is a bug fix release for the 3.x series of Joomla! which addresses a single bug that prevents new installations of Joomla! 3.7.4 with remote databases.

What's in 3.7.5?
Joomla! 3.7.5 has been released to address a bug introduced in Joomla! 3.7.4 relating to the implementation of additional security checks in the install application designed to protect your web hosting account from being overtaken by a remote attacker.
Note that this patch only changes one file in the installation folder so nothing changes for existing installations except the version number.
