Las Vegas Joomla DayWith Joomla so popular now that even Paris Hilton uses (and breaks) it [Editor note: It seems early reports of Ms. Hilton using Joomla are not accurate- see the comments in the original post from Joomla core team representatives], it's no surprise that new Joomla User Groups (JUGs) are popping up all over the map.

The latest is in Wisconsin, where the Milwaukee User Group will hold its first meeting in a couple weeks. A few of us Vermonters call the New England User Group home, which has grown to an impressive number and is now helping spin off another new JUG in the seacoast region of New Hampshire (near Portsmouth.)

And then there are Joomla Days like the upcoming one in Las Vegas. Unfortunately we'll never know what happens there, because what happens in Vegas So you'd better find your own local Joomla User Group and/or Joomla Day to attend!

If you are involved in a JUG or Joomla Day and think we should blog about it here on Joomlashack, let us know!

From the Joomla.org website:

The Joomla! community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla! 1.5.6 [Vusani]. This is a quick turnaround security release to address a high level security issue and it is recommended all users upgrade immediately.

A flaw in the reset token validation mechanism allows for non-validating tokens to be forged. This will allow an unauthenticated, unauthorized user to reset the password of the first enabled user (lowest id). Typically, this is an administrator user. Note, that changing the first users username may lessen the impact of this exploit (since the person who changed the password does not know the login associated with the new password). However, the only way to completely rectify the issue is to upgrade to 1.5.6 (or patch the /components/com_user/models/reset.php file).
