Customer Announcement: Joomla! 1.5 No Longer Supported
Joomla! 1.5 is no longer being supported for and as such Media Street are advising all customers currently using this version of Joomla! to upgrade to version 2.5 or preferably version 3 to prevent your website being compromised. websites that continue to use Joomla! 1.5 are vulnerable to attack and hackers are increasingly targeting these websites therefore we are asking customers to treat this with high priority.
It should be noted that upgrading to the latest Joomla! version isn't going to completely safe-guard you against hacking and customers are advised to be careful when installing add-ons and extras. If in doubt always consult your web developer.
Besides better security, there are a number of other benefits when you upgrade to version 2.5 including a more streamlines back-end that is a lot simpler to use, better browser compliancy ensuring all major browsers can view your website correctly and a more search engine friendly website where Google can can identify your keywords and content much easier. Additionally version 3 has the Twitter bootstrap inbuilt and is mobile friendly.
