jDownloads 3.2.33 for Joomla 3.2+ is now available for download. Please update as soon as possible. The new version corrects some additional facilities, including Alpha User Points, and better support of multi-language sites.
For easy installation go to the Joomla Extensions Manager / Updates and install the new update. You can find details of this and other releases in the complete changelog download 'details' page.
JD 1.9.x Series users - Please update to jD22.214.171.124 (Joomla 2.5) or jD126.96.36.199 (Joomla 3.x)
The Bug, which is fixed in the latest releases, allowed users without the appropriate permissions to upload files. This has been exploited from sometime in late July by a hacker who has uploaded malicious files on some sites. As well as updating please also check any file uploaded since then to see if you recognise it and DELETE if you do not recognise it. Some people may prefer to restore their complete website from a backup, including the entire database.
Note: check at first the jDownloads upload root folder, the /images/jdownloads/screenshots and the /images/jdownloads/screenshots/thumbnails folders.
For Joomla! 2.5: get jD188.8.131.52
For Joomla! 3.x: get jD184.108.40.206
