Expect a mass server exploit over Xmas: Change root/su pws

I've been seeing a lot more Russian contact on my websites in the past week. This is not fearmongering because of the election, it's something I notice before most mass hacks.

Fake accounts made on my business sites, fake contact forms filled out, more upticks from alien countries. I run Joomla CMS as my front-end and I notice this stuff over Christmas happening a lot. 2 years ago it was Palestine hackers, the year before it was Turkish. I am not a security expert, I am just going on past experience and the number of hits have been ramping up.

I would change your superuser passwords just in case, maybe check your logs if you run a widely used CMS.
