2020-11-27 15:02: Joomla! 3.9.23 security update
Joomla! 3.9.23 was announced 25 November 2020 as a security update for all previous Joomla! editions.
Joomla! 3.9.22 and older versions are therefore considered to be insecure.
If you're using Joomla! 3.9.22 or older versions, you must upgrade to 3.9.23 as soon as possible.
2020-11-19 10:41: Fraud attempts aimed at Domainnameshop's customers
Recently, we have seen an increase in fraud attempts to "renew" the domain sent via email to several of our customers.
The fraud attempt appears to have been professionally and thoroughly carried out, but it is possible to see some signs that it is not legitimate. Here is what to look for:
- Sender pretends to be "Domeneshop", but the email address is not ours.
- The email contains a link to "complete the renewal". The text suggests that the link goes to domeneshop.no, but if you look closer, it goes to a completely different address.
- The expiration date is in international format (YYYY-MM-DD) and does not match the actual expiration date of the domain.
- Customers who have an email with us will see that the message has a high spam score, customers with extra automatic spam filtering get the message directly in the spam folder.
- Link directly to payment in the e-mail (we link to a digital invoice which is on our website).
These characters may vary from attempt to attempt, but pay special attention to emails that do not come from a Domainnameshop email address and where the link appears to go to Domainnameshop, but does not actually do so.
2020-11-12 13:21: PHP 7.2-webhotel upgrades to PHP 7.4 finished
Earlier today, we finished upgrading webhotels with PHP 7.2 to PHP 7.4.
Affected customers' account administrator and webmaster have been notified via email.
During a short transition period, a temporary downgrade to PHP 7.2 is possible if the upgrade has resulted in problems. It is also possible to select PHP 7.3, which we recommend against, as security support for PHP 7.3 ends late 2021.
Customers who have temporarily downgraded to PHP 7.2, and who have not upgraded again within the end of November, will automatically be upgraded again in the beginning of December, without the option of downgrading to 7.2. Only PHP 7.3 will be available as a downgrade option.

2020-11-05 12:16: WordPress 5.5.3 security update
On 30 October, WordPress released update 5.5.3, which is a bugfix release for the security update 5.5.2 released 29 October.
Other versions than those listed below, are considered unsafe. Please update as soon as possible. We also remind you that because PHP 7.2 soon will cease receiving security updates, any WordPress versions not supporting PHP 7.3 or newer, will likely experience difficulties.
We urge all WordPress-using customers to update to 5.5.3.
2020-10-08 14:01: PHP 7.2 webhotels will be upgraded November 2, 2020
November 2, 2020, we will automatically upgrade webhotels using PHP 7.2 to PHP 7.4.
Customers with PHP 7.2 can already upgrade via our control panel.
Account administrator and webmaster for affected domains receive notifications via email from today through Saturday morning.
