Is there anyway to keep the latest joomla 1.5 version safe enough to not have to migrat to 2.5 or even3. I have a wesite that has a lot of info and some modules that re not compatibllw with newer versions. Specially my forum module cant be transfered to 2.5 so i would lose all those forum posts.
What is the best way to keep my joomla 1.5 site as safe from attacks as possible?

I advice you must use latest and update version

What forum module are you using? It's possible that another module might accept an export from the older forum module you're using in Joomla 1.5.
You're SOL when it comes to Joomla 1.5 and security. Support for it was dropped at the end of 2012. Meaning, any new bugs or security flaws that have been discovered since then will remain unpatched. It's a risky move to continue running an unsupported CMS version.
Joomla, and especially the 1.5 branch, has been infamous for its security issues.

Can you elaborate on this? It is a very generic statement.
