Hello! Using joomla version 1.5.22. It seems that this version would be a security problem. Does anyone know anything applicable to worry or have enough people from hosting antivirus and It should not even worry me?

All canned apps have a security problem and they're easy targets for script kiddies. Visit Joomla's website regularly for patches and patch immediately upon release (because the releases are to patch known/advertised vulnerabilities).
WORRY! I may be paranoid but that serves well to detect any hacking attempt early and get things patched immediately. Just because I'm paranoid does not mean that there's not a script kiddie out there looking for a cheap thrill at someone's website. The trick is to be so difficult to hack that they move along to an easier target.

Thanks for the advice. It is good to know the future and how best to protect yourself so your work is not in vain. There are several components to joomla 1.5.22 but the only thing for which I've installed so far is that I want the site to be slow and rely on the fact that the hosting company has established antivirus.

I used to have my joomla 1.5 outdated to. I had 1.5.22 and i realized it had too many secutiry holes. So i upgraded to the latst 1.5 which is 1.5.26. I suggest you upgrade to it before you do anything else.

... and don't forget the addons! They're the best avenue of attack!
