Yesterday, the wave of attack has gone fatal as it cracked into every site. People who are observing the threat from close range are of the thought that probably every other Joomla website out there is being targeted as well. For the websites using Joomla 3.X, a patch and update is available. The version 3.4.6 of patch has been offered by the company to fill the exploit.

    On one of my sites I have hacked some center documents to incapacitate composing session data in sessions table, with the exception of sessions of the administrator side of joomla. Would that inadvertently protect me from this attack?
