PostSubject: Enhanced Security Added   Mon 09 Aug 2010, 4:14 am


It has been brought to my attention that some hackers are selling exploits that can cause denial of service for forumotion forums and basicly remove your forums. But rest easy, I have found out that they can not use this exploit if you have a cpatcha option added to your forum. Their bots can not as of yet at least handle captcha phrases. So to secure our forums I have added a captcha setting for all new members. You may have noticed that the Register button is flashing. I had to make it this way for everyone in order for it to flash for non members. It will not affect members normal surfing habits at all on here. I just wanted to throw this out there to show our members that I do stay on top of security issues and do my best to secure the forum and it's members from any attacks. So rest easy.

UPDATE
Ok I have fixed the register button to only show to guests now, so members should ot be seeing it anymore unless they log out.
