It is not easy for a Joomla newbie to define front-end items in the back-end, change module positions, etc. It also takes time to manage the website content since items are divided into separate sections and you need to click a lot to edit them.
About a week ago, I received an email from an anonymous hacker. He had sent the same email to around 350 people in the Joomla community. They were all registered in the same affiliate system for a well-known software developer, and attached to the email was an Excel sheet with all of their contact info and user names. The hacker said he had extracted the info from an insecure system and offered "security services" to protect from similar hacks.
Apparently, people had been talking about this for a couple of days already on Twitter. Still, I wanted to check a little more what this guy was after.
