patch

Patch may refer to: read more at WikiPedia

  • The core component of JOOMLA: com_login and com_registration will soon be able to support my framework com_securityimages, here is a screenshot of an already running code. I've made change in com_securityimages in order to scale the resulting picture (which is in login 75% smaller than in normal case).

    • The code will be check in com_securityimages CVS
    • A binary installer will be release soon (will require com_securityimages1.1.3.zip)

    JArtForms seems to have issue with SecurityImages, as seen in my forum here, so here are the patched
    versions working with SecurityImages 5.0.

    ArtForms2.1b7.1-for-J1.5-RC1-Update-Only.zip is clearly developed for SecurityImages 4.X.X (Joomla 1.0.X)
    and not for SecurityImages 5.X.X (Joomla 1.5.X)


    The JArtForms component is a package for an easy From Generator for Joomla 1.0.xx.
    It allows you to generate as much Forms as you like, you can define all fields
    that you need and also make file upload and attachment possible.
    The idea of the JArtForms is to give a tool that is enabling you to create a
    dynamic forms in minutes within your Joomla! CMS.
    The key features are:

    • Possibility for create an unlimited amount of forms with unlimited fields and contents.
    • Possibility to edit component's CSS, language, settings and update easy from old versions.
    • Optional you can save all received forms in database.
    • Custom Lay-out for every field.
    • View received forms in Front End.
    • Joomla's SEF support and added sh404sef support.
    • Joomfish support.
    • Newsletter Bridge (only Letterman for now).
    • Database Backups and easy updates from previous versions.
    • Captcha support with optional systems for every form (Alikon Mod, CaptchaForm,
      CaptchaTalk, reCaptcha, Alikon Mambot, SecurityImages and EasyCaptcha).
    • Language and Captcha audio support for spanish, english, german, hungarian,
      dutch, turkish, brazilian portuguese, french, italian and polish (polish without audio files).
    • And much more!

    I wont maintain nor make any new versions of JArtForms. Please contact the authors and ask them to
    patch their code, or with the next version my code will suddenly break...

    For Joomla 1.5, either download

    For hacker, all you have to do is use the version  ArtForms2.1b7.1-for-J1.5-RC1-Update-Only.zip and follow
    the tutorial below

  • These files are from the 1.0.11 Joomla distributions plus all changes required to support securityimages in
    • com_contact
    • com_login
    • com_registration
    Please Note:
    1. this is a FTP patch!
    2. There is now way to deactivate securityimages in com_contact (other than deactivating securityimages sitewide)

    Patch is available in my download section and at Joomla Forge HERE

    Do yourself a favor and always use the latest securityimages version 3.0.7 . All versions of securityimages with a release  <= 3.0.5  have a  highly critical  securty flaws (server takeover) so UPGRADE

    The Joomla! community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla! 1.5.9

  • I always dislike doing this (changing core file of Joomla!) but here they ARE...

    If any core developer of Joomla! read this, can't we look together to have more event hook (in views, more in controller) in Joomla! core?

    • Are for Joomla! 1.5.1 only and SecurityImages 5.0.0Beta2

    forgot.your.password

     

    forgot.your.username

    To switch these patches ON/Off, go to the Global Configuration page as seen in the screen shot below

    You want to customize the error message? then edit the file language\en-GB\en-GB.com_user.ini and change the key

    SECURITYIMAGES REJECT USER ENTRY=Invalid Captcha word, Please enter the correct value you see in picture

    SECURITYIMAGES LABEL=Anti-spamming protection:

    Contact section

    On a per user/contact basis, a new switch is available:

    contact.settings.securityimages.5.0

    Result:

    contact.sections

     

    Login area

     

    Customize labels, keys are in language\en-GB\en-GB.mod_login.ini

     

    login.joomla

    and in module

    mod.login

    Administrator area

    Patches for administrator area are missing because the plugin SecurityImages in front end start a session that is different from the backend. I will for sure find a way to get around it. In between I recommend You to use htaccess login to enhance admin login protection and reduce brute force attacks.
