Dennis, et. al. -

On the off chance that you might not be aware, there have been some critical updates released for the phpBB software used here. These patch some "exploits" script kiddies out there have found that let them do nasty things to the boards using this software if they stumble across them.

One of the boards I frequent had all of their posts wiped, for example. Doofus running it had no backups, so... all gone! Evil or Very Mad

Our pain in upgrading to latest release
is that we've customized this board to the max.
With newer releases I weigh upgrading pain
against likelihood of getting waxed!

Know that all posts are backed up religiously
so in the event of a hacker attack
we’ll throw the switch on another box
and will in a jiffy bounce back.

Cool. Didn't mean to imply any level of doofosity on your part. Wink
