Replying to Avoid Phpbb! New Security Exploit!
Posted 13 June 2007 - 06:50 AM
I've just uploaded it for my site a couple of days ago.
I'm NOT ever using SMF, i really hate smf.
I might get rid of phpbb and use xmb, xmb is definately my favourite free forum around, i really love it.

I'll say stick with SMF

i'm kinda dubble sided as to what software i should use for my new forums. I have both experiences with phpBB and SMF. I was considering phpBB3 now so my new forums. Does anyone want to back phpBB3 or still reccomend me to go for SMF?

I would recommend people to avoid using phpbb 2 as well!!!

I've learnt my lesson too. And now, i use vBulletin, far more secure. Way secure!

Anyway, I'm having fun with SMF so far; everything is easier with it, and there's alot of features that work out of the box with SMF that I have to spend a few hours modding phpbb to get. I may try phpbb3 again when there are some decent mods out for it, but until then, I'm sticking with SMF.

All the sites you see that have been hacked have most likely used phpBB, there are quite a few alternatives and i'd say any of them would be better than phpBB.
You can go here: http://www.opensourcecms.com and check out the forum demos on the site.

It's not about the script being stolen or anything like that, it's about being exploited due to the security holes it has. The developers at phpBB need to patch up these exploits as quickly as they can. The last time I read up about this, they weren't quick on their part...so I guess many had problems already.
owwhh....i was wondering to used phpbb...is it really that this script so easy to stole...... can anyone give me a script that really safe for my new coming forum...)
If you want a "good" forum, try out Simple Machines Forum at:
They usually patch up the security holes very quickly...sometimes even before it's known to the public (lots of forum testers ).
