Joomla 3 Unauthorized access

Apr 19, 2013 by jomnew

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
