I Can't Get Into My Joomla Admin Panel. What Do I Do?

Maybe you've just tested your site, or it has recently been attacked from a computer in your internet provider's network, where the attacker had your actual IP address. Now you can't access your site for exactly that time period you configured as the time window.

In that case please disconnect your computer from the internet and open a new connection. Your internet provider will then assign your computer to another IP address and you can access your admin panel again.

I Get a Scary "Access denied" Message When I Log Out Of The Joomla Admin Panel. What Does This Mean?

This is a regular process. On a logout the PHP Session is dropped, where Ninja Security has stored a unique indicator of your authorization, before you logged in.

Thus after logout the indicator does not exist anymore and Ninja Security, as it should be, denies access to the login page.

I'm kicked out of my AdminPanel, no authorization.

When your admin session expires the PHP session is dropped, where Ninja Security has stored a unique indicator of your authorization, before you logged in. Please note that not Ninja Security kicked you out of the admin panel, but Joomla did due to your expired session.

Regularly you would now be redirected to the login page, but due to the non-existent unique indicator NinjaSecurity denies access.

You will now have to use your Login Key in order to login again.

My exploit string doesn't work.

Please note that every exploit string has to be written on its own line.

It's also very important to write whitespace as hexadecimal URL codes. So please don't write union select, but union%20select.
