Version Verification Tool Released

The Version Verification Tool, which has been out for a few months was recently submitted and approved by the JED. This great tool is essential for any Joomla admin or developer to verify the integrity of the core Joomla files. The package contains signatures of all Joomla files from version 1.5.0 to 1.5.15 (and will be updated as new ones arrive), which makes it a snap to tell if your system has been modified before you upgrade, develop, or go bug-hunting. Additionally, as some malware is silently inserted into core files, this provides a quick and easy check to see if you've been compromised.

Check it out, and please leave a positive review if you like it!
