... exactly this, a bug in VirtueMart. Despite the attempts of VM developers to pin this vulnerability to Joomla!, I can assure you, this issue is solely a VirtueMart bug. Nothing more.
I am a bit astonished and disappointed about particular medias reaction and also about VirtueMart efforts to declare that this is Joomla!'s issue. It's not.
I personally think that the ice bucket challenge is bad idea. Well not exactly. The idea itself isn't that bad. What bothers me a bit that people are doing advertising for this particular organisation.
There is no way around it.
Deep and dark like a sadness.
From time to time I see people asking how to block the right-mouse-click on their website. Even worse, from time to time I am visiting websites that actually are blocking the right-mouse-click. Even worse, there are extensions for Joomla! offering this functionality.
If you were ever considering to do this at your website, please take a cold shower and forget this idea. Here is why!
A warning for third party developers
Dear Joomla! extension developers, dear template creators;
You know that Joomla! 3.3 Beta 2 has been released. Do you?
And you installed it already on your dev environment. Have you?
And then you installed all your extensions/templates on Joomla! 3.3. Right?
And you tested everything very extensively. Have you?
And in case you found any issue, you helped Joomla! core developers to fix the issue at least by reporting it. Am I right?
Zitat aus der FAZ: "In Niedersachsen, Nordrhein-Westfalen und Mecklenburg-Vorpommern sollen mindestens 150 Betriebe mehr Hennen als erlaubt gehalten haben - darunter konventionelle- und Bio-Betriebe, solche mit Gruppenkäfig-, Boden- wie auch Freilandhaltung. Im Fall der Bio-Eier wären diese zu Unrecht als solche verkauft worden"
Let's imagine there is a honest game, but one of the players is apparently cheating...
One of the most common asked questions; in which file and which line do I have to modify the code to add this or that.
