Using one Database User to access multiple databases is a bad security practice! If the DB User's password security is ever compromised then multiple databases become vulnerable. How to see if your Joomla Database is connected to a DB user with access to multiple databases - and how to change things if that is happening - is what today's Maintenance Monday is all about.

 

  • Video title: "No Database Threesomes in Joomla 🛠 MM Live Stream #122 - YouTube"
    - Tim Davis, a Joomla enthusiast, discusses security concerns related to having a database user with access to multiple databases on a Joomla site.
    - He refers to the "mySites.guru" service for monitoring Joomla sites, providing security audits, updates, and backups.
    - Tim demonstrates how to identify the issue using the service's database integrity feature.
    - The problem: Database users should only have access to one database; accessing multiple databases poses a security risk.
    - Analogy: He compares it to a golf scenario, where a shared database user can transmit issues between different databases.
    - Solution: Create unique MySQL users for each database, using cPanel or web hosting interface, and update configuration files.
    - Tim walks through creating new users and adding them to databases to secure each Joomla site individually.
    - He highlights the importance of securing database access to prevent compromises and hacking.
    - He discusses a solution for cases where shared users need to be removed or their permissions limited.
    - Tim encourages users to perform regular checks on their Joomla sites for security vulnerabilities.
    - Viewers are reminded to subscribe to the channel and stay tuned for upcoming topics.
