Joomla Team Discloses Data Breach – 2,700 Individuals Were Affected

Joomla is a popular free and open-source content management system used for publishing web content. The team behind the CMS discloses the data breach last week.

The incident happens after a team member left an unencrypted full backup of the JRD site on an unsecured Amazon Web Services S3 bucket.

The company said that more than 2,700 users who have access to resources.joomla.org website are affected.

Data Impacted – Joomla

The company confirms that no financial or reputational data was exposed as a part of the breach. The Joomla team is currently investigating the incident.

Following are the details included with the backup

  • Full name
  • Business address
  • Business email address
  • Business phone number
  • Company URL
  • Nature of business
  • Encrypted password (hashed)
  • IP address
  • Newsletter subscription preferences

“Most of the data was public since users submitted their data with the intent of being included in a public directory. Private data (unpublished, unapproved listings, tickets) was included in the breach,” read a company statement.

The audit report also stated, “the presence of SuperUser accounts owned by individuals outside Open Source Matters.”

The company confirms there is no third-party access to the database, even though it is recommended to change the passwords immediately if the same password used for multiple logins.

“We apologize for the inconvenience. We are deeply committed to providing the best and most secure infrastructure for our community. Thank you for the support and understanding, reads the notification.
