Joomla 5.0.1, 4.4.1 and 3.10.14-elts Security and Maintenance Release

Joomla 5.0.1 and 4.4.1 Security & Bugfix Releases. Secure. Accessible. Fast. Extendable & yours.

🎉 Joomla 5.0.1, 4.4.1 and 3.10.14-elts are released and it's a safe upgrade! 🥳

The Joomla project has released versions 5.0.1, 4.4.1, and 3.10.14-elts, addressing a very-low-probability vulnerability that affects Joomla versions 1.6 to 3.10.12, 4.4.0 and 5.0.0.

This vulnerability is of very low probability, as it requires the site super-administrator to have given to the attacker editing access to the language files, to potentially expose environment variables that may contain sensitive information.

Security Update Instructions:

  • Joomla 5.0.1 and 4.4.1: Easily update through the standard built-in Joomla updater.
  • Joomla 3.10.14-elts: Consider upgrading your Joomla 3.10 site to Joomla 4.4.1 instead (see below for instructions). If not possible, consider subscribing to the official 18-months Joomla Extended Long-Term Security support program, while planing an upgrade to 4.4.1 and 5.0.1. Visit for more details.
