Joomla! 2.5 support ended December 31, 2014 (the latest official release is 2.5.28). Although this was more than 3 years ago, many sites have not yet migrated to Joomla! 3 (find reasons why you should migrate here).

Many of those sites used the Google reCaptcha v1 widget. Google turned off reCAPTCHA v1 March 31, 2018. Therefore, any call to the v1 API stopped working after March 31, 2018, resulting in failing form submissions.

PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a set of security standards that websites have to follow in order to be able to process credit card transactions.

Generally, a third-party security assessor conducts the tests and generates a PCI compliance report, examining the physical infrastructure of the website, its access and potential code vulnerabilities.

The Joomla! platform is more secure than ever but third-party extensions and vendors may still have code issues that may need to be addressed.
