Joomla vs. Drupal
So every now and then I have to work with a compromised box and you see some reoccurring patterns. One of the things I’ve noticed is the frequency that Joomla get compromised. I recently had an acquaintance tell me they prefer Joomla over Drupal and insisted it is just as secure. I have talked with several knowledgeable web admins and all of them suggest Drupal (if you can’t write your own CMS) and to stay away from Joomla. So I decided to document my finds and see how they compare.
So my first day out, here is the outcome:
Joomla Compromises: 7
Drupal Compromises: 0
So my friend says this is a skunk, game over, Joomla looses, But I am going to keep a tally going for the next month or so.
Joomla: 11 / 14
Drupal: 1 / 8
