In addition to more than 40 errors not relevant to security, version 1.0.10 (Sundown) of the Joomla! Open Source content management system remedies a total of nine weak points that affect security. Developers have categorized three of the weak points as "high-level threats" because they allow for SQL injections. Attackers could use them to get access to a database via prepared user parameters. In addition, three cross-site scripting holes were closed along with various smaller holes. Developers highly recommend switching to the new version immediately.
