Footprinting Joomla CMS based Websites

Some of the popular methods for footprinting information for jooma based cms sites

Read css file for details :

/templates/system/css/system.css

Find and open the file in your browser and check for this part:

Version of Joomla Source Code
Joomla 1.0.x The easiest way to determine if a site is using Joomla! or not is to view the source code of the page.

Joomla! 1.0.x sites will have the following:

1
<meta name="Generator" content="Joomla! - Copyright (C) 2005 - 2007 Open Source Matters." />
Joomla 1.5 /* OpenID icon style */
and in templates\system\css\template.css file you should find this:

* @copyright Copyright (C) 2005 – 2010 Open Source Matters.

in newer versions of Joomla! this file no longer exists

By default, all Joomla! 1.5.x sites will have the following in the head of their site:

1
<meta name="generator" content="Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management" />
Joomla 1.6 * @version $Id: system.css 20196 2011-01-09 02:40:25Z ian $
Joomla 1.7 * @version $Id: system.css 21322 2011-05-11 01:10:29Z dextercowley $
Joomla 2.5 * @copyright Copyright (C) 2005 – 2012 Open Source Matters

Another way it’s to compare MooTools (JavaScript Framework) versions using a media/system/js/mootools-more.js file:

Joomla 1.5 MooTools={version:’1.12′} media\system\js\mootools.js
Joomla 1.6 MooTools.More={version:”1.3.0.1″
Joomla 1.7 MooTools.More={version:”1.3.2.1″
Joomla 2.5.6 MooTools.More={version:”1.4.0.1″
Joomla 3.0 alpha 2 MooTools.More={version:”1.4.0.1″

Another way to check with Joomla 1.6 or Joomla 1.7.x website is based on it’s to compare date in language file: language/en-GB/en-GB.ini

Joomla 1.5.26 # $Id: en-GB.ini 11391 2009-01-04 13:35:50Z ian $

Joomla 1.7.5 ; $Id: en-GB.ini 22183 2011-09-30 09:04:32Z infograf768 $
