JED Team Meeting

The Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED) team met on May 31st, 2019, at 4 pm GMT, via Glip to discuss our progress of current tasks.

  • In attendance: Anibal Sanchez, Dénes Székely, Jaz Parkyn, Hugh Douglas-Smith, Luca Marzo, Mark Lee, and Troy Hall.

  • Absent: Daniel Dubois.

JED Server Security Incident

After the May security incident, we are implementing the final tasks to prevent future cases. The Stage site is completely independent and the CI infrastructure is going to be based on simple git hooks. Each node running its own deploying process. Jenkins CI is no longer part of the architecture. In the future, we'll continue the efforts to isolate sites and services to reduce security dependencies/accesses.

Security notification to change the site password has been sent to all users. Inactive users will be removed within 6 months. Bounces are going to be unsubscribed as a first step.
