We are now in the process of re-applying all the recent code changes while we watch for attacks. Again, this may take a while because we are watching for attacks.
  

Perfection is not possible. Excellence, however, is excellent.

We are still working on locating the exploitable code. This requires occassionally disabling YaBB.pl to stop the attack.

So please bear with us.

We have opened the Forum to guests using a backup copy of the scripts. Over the next few days we will start replacing old scripts with newer ones to find the section that had the exploitable section.

Thank you for your patience.

Due to what appears to be intermittent DOS attacks, this forum will be in Maintenance Mode until we figure out what is being exploited.

Edited:
We are now on Members Only as we keep an eye on the issue.
