Joomla! Web Securityby Tom Canavan
Today all websites must consider security; this security handbook for Joomla! websites is a must-read for anyone seriously using Joomla! for business. You need knowledge of Joomla! but not prior knowledge of securing websites. Joomla! is a safe CMS but misconfiguration, vulnerable components, poorly configured hosts, and weak passwords can all contribute to the downfall of your website, if you do not know how to secure it from threats. This book has a strong, hands-on approach to security. Starting from basics like choosing host sites, it is packed with relevant, real-world topics: configuration suggestions; key security tools; test and development environments; vulnerabilities - SQL injection, kiddie-scripts, PHP injection, and other attacks; tools used by malicious hackers; safe php.ini and .htaccess settings; interpreting log files; implementing SSL; responding to a site emergency and collecting forensic evidence. It ends with a concise reference section for security administrators.
