Hi Johan,

BT Photography use component BT Portfolios to show photo galleries. It's not use in BT Gallery. Could you tell me about the time that BT Foto template had vulnerabilities? Did you used the older version? The old version of BT Portfolio may have some vulnerabilities but we have to fix it.

Best regards,

Hi Johan,

Hope this finds you well :)

Please note that we have received a report notifying us that your domain (xxxxxxx) has been compromised. I have password protected your site to limit the damage.

It happened twice to me now with that template(BT PHOTOGAPHY). this template(gallery) I installed on a test domain that's not protected and I have never had problems with it.

SO something must be wrong the photography template. its very embarrassing for me t tell my clients they cant use my website

SO I deleted site because I don't know where to start looking for problem and I am not good with coding and can only work from a template. That was only way they could remove password for me if I could repair the vulnerability but I couldn't so I ask them to delete my sit so I can try other template.

I am afraid to us the photography template again. Because its a lot of work o get everything back to normal again.

* Check whether any extensions listed on the vulnerable

extensions list are in your installation:

http://docs.joomla.org/Vulnerable_Extensions_List

* If the application is not being used, please remove it

entirely.

* Remove all non-essential plugins, components and modules from

the application, as many of these introduce security holes.

Delete the files of any unnecessary extensions - only

disabling an extension will leave weak files in place.

* Change the administration passwords. Check that there are no

new "administrator" users.

* You can require additional authentication for the 'admin'

directory of the application. cpanel provides a function to

set this up and to manage the allowed passwords.

* Upgrade to the current version of the web application(s) or

reinstall the web application if it is already the current

version.

* Upgrade to the current version of each the plugins used by

the web application(s).

* Change the database access password

* Consider blocking sign-ups and comments for forums, content

management systems, and blogs, as this will prevent many

attacks.

* Set new passwords for all mail accounts where the length of

the current password is 7 letters or less. (With access to

the account one can copy the encrypted passwords, and decrypt

simpler passwords by brute force.)

* Remove any modifications made to the web site content (e.g.

additional administrator accounts, trojan plugins, spam edits

to the beginning or the end of the files, etc.) You can find

some of these by looking for files with recently modified

timestamps.

* Consider using a browser which will resist cross site

scripting (XSS) attacks, especially when doing administrative

functions on the site (e.g. up to date Chrome or Firefox with

the NoScript plugin). This is important if the content of

your site has been modified to link to malware.

* Use the file manager or FTP to set permissions on the

your configuration files and their parent directory so that

these cannot be read (ie. drwx--x--x, "0711").

* Understand that if you do restore the account from a backup

you will restore the account to its vulnerable state, and you

may also reinstate the modifications made by the intruders.

* Examine the desktop systems which are used for administering

this site for malware (viruses, keyloggers) with up to date

security software, especially if it seems that the intruder

had access to your administration passwords.

* Consider that there may be more to this problem than meets the

eye: for example, the offending file or content may be present

on desktop systems that are associated with this account.

* The same applications, plugins, themes and passwords that led

to the incident on this account may be in use on other

accounts. Please be sure to update not only this account, but

also the other accounts which are similarly vulnerable to

intruders.

Please attend to this as soon possible and update us with your resolution. We will then review the domain and remove the password protection.

Regards,

Hi Johan,

Template BT Gallery doesn't use BT Portfolios to show photo galleries but it use component BT Media. It also displays photos in each category. I think you can use them to show your photo galleries.

I also want to know which version of BT Foto you've used?

Hi Johan du Preesz,

BT Media updated version 1.1 and you can download and update it. I think template BT Photo is not the problem. You try partially installing. Please don't use the quickstart. Try with this way for third times.

I'm so sorry for this problem. Hope it'll help you. Please contact me if you have any problems.

Best regards,
