Kazakh joins the officially released language packs for Joomla!, an award-winning Content Management System (CMS).
It’s an exciting day for The Joomla Project and BRANDIT!
As the consolidation and packaging of web services move forward, we are happy to announce the official launch of our domains platform (powered by BRANDIT), domains.joomla.org.
Every website starts with a domain name, and by offering domains directly from Joomla.org, our users gain a new way to help build their online presence whilst helping the project financially.
Domains.joomla.org is a full domain registry service that gives Joomla a direct connection to TLD’s and Registrars.
This partnership opens up new opportunities for sponsorship and special offers to the Joomla Community.
As we launch the platform, two registrars have already sponsored several JoomlaDays, and BRANDIT has become a Platinum Sponsor of the Joomla Project.
Whether you are looking for a new domain name or to transfer your existing domain portfolio, domains.joomla.org is the perfect platform. Offering you a wide range of TLDs alongside a robust and intuitive industry leading control panel for domain management.
It is that simple, get started today, together Joomla and BRANDIT make your domains feel at home!

A report by Check Point Research has been brought to our attention relating to a security vulnerability that was patched back in December 2015. This report has also been picked up by Threat Post.
Both reports contain a great deal of inaccuracies and intimate that the vulnerability detailed is a current one.
This statement serves to clarify the facts surrounding this issue. Furthermore we would like to assure our user base that, much as these posts attempt to state that this is a current issue, the truth of the matter is far from that.
With this in mind, we would like to clarify a few points:
The pattern described by Check Point is a classic one - where an attacker exploits a well-known security issue. The issue is over 3 years old and stems from a security issue found in PHP, rather than the Joomla core. More information on this issue can be found here:
By exploiting this issue an attacker can embed a backdoor in site, which can be used for malicious activity. In order to make detection as hard as possible, attackers often use copies of real application files (in this case a copy of Joomla's mailing class) to embed their exploit code. Those copies will never be used in normal application execution, so there's no "override" as claimed in the report, they simply used the file to obfuscate the actual backdoor.
January 30th 2019 - It’s freezing cold in Chicago today and according to the news, it’s even colder than on the Mount Everest - so a perfect day to stay inside a warm building, sitting in front of your machine and having a (sorry, bad Everest joke) summit!
As of release 3.5 Joomla is collecting stats data, thanks to the stats plugin (only works if it’s enabled), and it found too many websites are not using the currently supported release of 3.9.2. This data is based on the Joomla, PHP, and database version. These are some pretty alarming statistics, and should not be ignored! We have provided some links at the bottom of this article for your reference, review, and to even get the latest release of Joomla.
On September 8th, 2018, a "Pizza, Bugs & Fun" (PBF) event took place in Germany, Austria, Italy, Netherlands and France with different local user groups, so-called Joomla User Groups (JUGs). Everyone could learn how they can contribute to the improvement of Joomla.
