Joomla Security Scan

Test Joomla Security with this easy to use Joomla security scan service. Discover vulnerabilities, web server details and configuration errors.

Joomla is one of the most popular open source content management systems and is a common target for attackers due its popularity and the wide variety of extensions that are available. These Joomla security scans will test your site for security issues, configuration errors and poor reputation links so you can get to work mitigating the vulnerabilities.

About JoomlaVS

JoomlaVS is developed in the open source ruby programming language. If you have the inclination I encourage you to spin up a Linux host and download the latest version from github and run it yourself. Like any security tool, by having your own installation of JoomlaVS you will be able to gain a better understanding in how to keep your Joomla based web site as secure as possible.

In the past we hosted the OWASP Joomla Vulnerability Scanner which was developed back in 2009 and was last updated in 2012. It has been developed to identify vulnerabilities in the enormously popular content management system Joomla. Since 2012 there have been no new releases. This means the database is quite out of date and the tool will not detect newer vulnerabilities.
