At CloudFlare, we spend a lot of time talking about the PoPs (Points of Presence) we have around the globe, however, on December 14th, another kind of POP came to the world: a vulnerability being exploited in the wild against Joomla’s Content Management System.
If you are a CloudFlare Pro or above customer you enjoy the protection of the CloudFlare WAF. If you use one of the common web platforms, such as WordPress, Drupal, Plone, WHMCS, or Joomla, then it's worth checking if the relevant CloudFlare WAF ruleset is enabled.
The CloudFlare team takes a great deal of pride in listening to the feedback of our users. We're pleased to announce that we recently released a beta version of our CloudFlare Joomla extension that will help you get the most out of using Joomla and CloudFlare together.
