Vulnerability in Akeeba Backup for Joomla went undetected for years

2014/08/22

Softpedia - (International) Sucuri researchers found a vulnerability in the Akeeba Backup extension for Joomla that has existed for years and could allow a skilled attacker to access backup files created with Akeeba and download them. The researchers stated that the security risk presented by the vulnerability was low due to the difficulty in exploiting it, and the newest version of Akeeba is no longer vulnerable.
