It was a list of the actual tables with my specific prefixes plus other tables I created.

I've gotten most, if not all, of my plugins from, and I use a lot of them. Turning them off, as I have done, makes it look like a different forum. I assume disabling them does not prevent the vulnerabilities?

Here is the email thread - everything is from the emailer. I may have made a mistake but I did reply once with a "thanks, I will look into it"
