Templatesbrowser.com puts phishing code in Joomla

I have already told you that Templatesbrowser puts linkspam in Wordpress templates.

Now they do something similar with an adapted version of content management system Joomla, according to this discussion:


The PHP code sends every URL requested by your visitors to templatesbrowser.com, including all parameters. In other words, templatesbrowser monitors exactly what your visitors do on your Joomla website.
Additionally, it can return a piece of HTML code, probably with link spam, like in their Wordpress templates.

Conclusion: only download software from reliable sources.

Their Joomla page was just taken offline (404). Perhaps it helped that I complained to his provider, and to Google (who placed the ad).

This is a small threshold against spam.
