Security release: Admin Tools 1.1

Admin Tools 1.1 released, fixing security issues & adding new features

We are please to announce that Admin Tools Core and Admin Tools Professional version 1.1 was just released. This release fixes medium priority security issues and adds new features. It is also the first release which has been thoroughly tested against Joomla! 1.6 RC1. [div class="alert" class2="typo-icon"]This release addresses security issues. All users are advised to upgrade immediately.[/div]

Major highlights of this release:

  • Fixed medium priority XSS and CSRF vulnerabilities in the back-end. Thank you Jeff Channell for reporting them!

  • New one-click security hardening features: change your database table prefix, change your Super Admin user so as not to use unsafe ID 62/42.

  • You can change your database collation with a single click.

  • Automatic link migration: absolute URLs pointing to an old domain can be rewritten on-the-fly to point to your new domain. Very useful when you move your site between domains or between a local testing server and your live server.

  • Full Joomla! 1.6 compatibility. Admin Tools can be installed on Joomla! 1.6 RC1 and takes into account the new ACL feature in the upcoming Joomla! release. Furthermore, it makes use of Joomla!'s extensions update feature to notify you on updates. Professional subscribers will still have to use the updater integrated in the component as the download package is protected by username and password.

  • International by default: translations for 10 major languages out-of-the-box.

[div class="download" class2="typo-icon"]You can download the software from our Downloads page. If you are an ATPRO or AKEEBADELUXE subscriber make sure that you have logged in to the site before attempting to access the downloads page, otherwise you won't be able to see and download the Professional release.[/div]
