PHPBB version needs upgrading.

http://www.phpbb.com/downloads.php#latest

Just a headsup really. Last think you want is some 12 yr old hacker fcuking over the forum.

I did raise this one in more detail via PM about 2 weeks ago.

Anyway, I'm off to move home now - wish me luck.

Just a heads up guys - noticed for a while now that the forum's showing as phpbb v.2.0.11 :shock: - dangerously out of date and in desperate need of patching to phpbb 2.0.18.

I'm sure like everyone else, to see the forum get attacked by these sickos that got a boner over injecting sql into your db to take and assume admin rights would be awful..

phpbb aint a bitch to upgrade - unless you mod it..
if you modify a vb file, you've got to be careful upgrading over the top of it.

re: the bugs thing.

same must apply to linux., apache, mysql etc then too, they're free... so does 'free' mean = full of bugs.

Windows isn't free... but that doesnt stop it being full of bugs :D

The fact that phpbb is open source means people can FIND and FIX the bugs easier... which makes for a more secure product...

security by obscurity is not a good thing

and at the end of the day Jimmy, the decision is yours... but just assuming because the bugs are hidden doesnt mean they're not there :P

just some comments and thoughts..
