Vulnerabilities in CMS

If you're one of the many people who use Mambo or Joomla as the content management system for your website you're going to want to be careful. There's a perl bot on the loose that exploits components of both Mambo and Joomla. SimpleBoard and perForms are the two components which bots were found to be currently exploiting. The most vulnerabilities are in the third part components so even though the core of the CMS may be quite secure you'll want to watch out what other components you're using with it.
