Joomla websites are far less likely to get hacked than Wordpress websites but if you do not keep your system, components and plugins up to date, you are likely to get hacked sooner or later.

The most common form of hacking is the injection of PHP files into the website.  These are small scripts that can be used by the hacker to mass spam mail which likely results in your hosting company suspending your website. Another common forms of hacking are vandalism hacks where your front page has been changed or spam hacks where links to pharmaceutical companies are injected into your page
