The Joomla Project has announced the release of version 3.8.8 of the Joommla Content Management System. This is a security release that addresses 9 low level vulnerabilities and it also introduces a number of security best practices for administrators to take note of. A number of enhancements are also bundled into the release. Joomla site administrators are recommended to update asap.
This security hardening is in part the result of the work of the security team that met in Cologne after the recent J & Beyond conference. Our thanks go to all those involved.
