So you found a bug in the forum. Congrats. How about reporting it?

And how is a bug in a plugin Geeklog's fault?

bye, Dirk

This is really puzzling!!!! Why would you say something like this? Whats seems to be the problem with the Forum Plugin? You say nothing other than not to use it without backing up your comment "Not to use this Forum" Are you mad about something that you cannot seem to resolve and perhaps it might be something on your end that is not secured? Lets have some details as to what your complaining about before goin off half-baked.

He managed to post a few empty forum topics - I guess that's what he's referring to (I'm in the process of deleting them, so you may not see them any more).

I fail to see the security aspect either ...

bye, Dirk

Not very helpful and one could have just created these empty posts manually. I've not received any emails of anything posted on my site to make we aware of any issue.

The forum has speedlimit protection which is set to use the same number of seconds before allowing another post as stories and comments. It has the SPAMX integration to filter out spam. It also additionally checks for a min number of characters test in the usersname, and post content.

All input variables are filtered to remove javascript or other XSS and SQL injection attacks. Having said that - I can not say nor can anyone say that it is 100% secure or protected from an attack or automated script of some kind. There is always someone coming up with some new method to cause grief.

Without more information which should be sent to myself or Dirk to review and follow-up then it's either just a joke or an idle boast. We have nothing to allow us to investigate.

I've used GL, forum and plenty other of Blaine's scripts for over 2 1/2 yrs. without any problems or security issues.

I have at least ten geeklog sites running for 3+ years and never been hacked, some include Blaine's premium plugins.

The only time I was hacked was when I had phpBB on it.

Obviously he is trying to fool the newcomers. Must be from some competition--another CMS that is not doing well.

For the record: We found the supposed "security" issue the original poster was talking about. It's not a security issue at all, he only found a way to post empty forum topics.
