Michael O'LoughlinAustralia Joomla! website hosting business Alltraders has launched two hassle-free maintenance packages to defend neglected websites against malicious attacks.

Alltraders Chief Information Officer Michael O’Loughlin said websites left unchecked for an extended period of time may contain identified security holes that had been publicly broadcast. “Transparency is one the greatest strengths of Open Source Software, but it is also a weakness,” he said.

“As security issues are located, they are broadcast to the community, leaving a paper trail with the aim to enhance the collective community knowledge. However, this information can also be used maliciously.

“While the security team at Joomla is constantly developing new updates to protect the community against these attacks, the key is knowing when and how to upgrade. The many extensions installed on the website also pose a risk if left unattended.

“After consultation with our clients, we have developed two packages to protect websites against malicious attacks by keeping them up to date - while leaving customers free to focus on their business.”

Proactive, reactive and recoverable:

These packages allow site owners to proactively manage their website and be avoid or minimise damage that has traditionally been difficult to control and recover from.

  • The packages add website firewalls within the site and these allow site owners to be aware of threat levels and instantly react to them.
  • They also proactively keep the Content Management System (CMS) as up to date as is possible in a rapidly changing and technological environment. The CMS is updated as updates are released.
  • Recovery is simple and guaranteed as the database and file system are sent on physical media to the site owner.
