This site is very insecure.I have done NO damage to any of the content on this site, however it would not have been difficult.

That would be supposing that I do my work from my home computer, and I'm not that stupid.

now now children, stop bickering, how do you intend to "hack him right back" poundsmack? how childish does that sound, where are you going to obtain his IP, and what makes you think you'll be able to do anything once you've got it.

.o0o.: thanks for pointing it out, but we've known about this for, well, just about forever(i take it you're a sourceforge user), i'm not going to deal with it because i'm not an admin member of the project(if somehting goes wrong i'll get in trouble ), but it's nothing major. i'll have to get owen to make me an admin, i may as well be as there aren't many people left around here.

as for the user creation thing, i can't upgrade the forums, so can't help there either.

so yeah, it's insecure, but for the most part i guess we rely on users to not f*** things up.

I probably should have paid more attention to security when creating the site... it was rather a rushed job, and I've just never found the time/enthusiasm/whatever to get around to fixing it.
