New releases of Joomla! were available last day: Joomla 2.5.14 and Joomla 3.1.5. These are mainly by a security fix for a critical bug. This bug allows someone to bypass filters then upload malicious things without privilege. We can find more about it here. Updating immediately is highly recommended for any security releases. So let us be quick.

How to update ?

If your current version is the same branch as new release, 2.5.x for 2.5.14? or 3.1.x for 3.1.5? Then it would be easier. In this page is how you have to do:

> Update your Joomla! to new versions.

If not, you have to use migration guide, to update across major versions first:

> Migrate to Joomla 3.x

> Migrate to Joomla 2.5.x
