One security tweak needed is to remove the Joomla's default generator meta tag. Joomla creates this meta tag automatically: <meta name="generator" content="Joomla! - Open Source Content Management" />. Hackers can use this code to identify a site as a Joomla site. BLUEwebs recommends that it be changed.
Joomla 2.5 has made it too easy to change, no add-ons, no extensions, simply add one line of code in the head section of your template.
<?php $this->setGenerator(' Put whatever you wish here '); ?>
Paste this code directly into your template, between the <head> </head> tags.Within the parenthesis, put whatever you want - your name, a misdirection, your company name. You're done. Couldn't be easier.
