Hi,

I am using Joomla 3 and I am suspecting that someone else is accessing my admin area because sometime I see the number of logged in users more than one, noting that I am the only person who has admin users on my site. how do I prevent unauthorised login to admin area to my site. I have antivirus is updated and I scanned for viruses and there were none. How can I minimize the security threats in Joomla 3? Can anyone please advice

If you didn’t logout and close the browser, it is possible that the system counts it as another log. So there might not be any unauthorized access.

try the .htaccess protections
http://docs.joomla.org/Htaccess_examples_%28security%29
or Install AdminExile, to provide a password for entering the administration area:
