Exposure of personal information in the Joomla CMS

05/28/2020

The Joomla team, a content management system (CMS), has suffered a data leak in JRD (Joomla Resources Directory), a community for developers and providers specialized in this platform that allows its users to access exclusive functions.

In its official statement, Joomla reports that 2,700 users with an account at resources.joomla.org have been potentially affected, stating that their personal information may have been accessible by a third-party company..

Filtered data includes full name, office address, work email, company phone, company URL, etc. Joomla recommends changing the credentials that your users use in other services, in case they match the ones they use in JRD.
