tlwwolfseye,

Never think you are 100% safe.

Expensive operating systems, programs, scripts,... are constantly updated for security.
Why? Because anything can be hacked.

I'm sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused.

If your forum has been hacked please check out this post:

He fixed the reported exploit last night. Since then I imagine hes been in bed, since he is in Europe and it was just early morning here when you posted. I suggest you think about what you are saying before spouting off.

I always appreciated your mods, you had a few really great ones. But now I am rather careful.
You should have always been really careful, but this is the risk you take when you install 3rd party modifications to a script. There are thousands of modifications on this site, and they are all made by humans...who from time to time, are known to make mistakes .

Truthfully, I'd prefer to use Valter's mods now because now that he has had this issue, I'm sure he'll be making sure 110% that his future mods are VERY throughly checked.

People are human.

Personally I feel the same, you releasing so many mods along with a few other members years ago kept me around . Things happen and Valter thanks for taking the time to post that info up about Team Analmus (lolz) they're the same bunch as the RECoders from what I've read however not wasting anymore time on them so let's all move on shall we? .

Yes I agree with the above sentiments, one can only try and stay ahead of the Ba$tards and update when things happen. Fortunately I was able to get up and running again within about 20 mins after reading some info that helped me, but I was actually logged in when they do the hack, so new something was up straight away and then that email came regarding the Mod, which flagged the reason as well.

They didn't get some of their code in due to other measures we have in place on my server.

Thanks for the quick fix to the mod, greatly appreciated.

Question

New feature request:

On our forums we need explicit acceptance of some rules, mainly for European privacy reasons. Would it be possible to add accept/not accept ckeckboxes and store the choice somewhere?

Along with this feature we also need an option for each choice which makes the user pass or not. For example, upon registration they must accept that we use cookies and that we keep their username, password and email on our servers. In addition there are a couple of more laws to obbey. Each rule must be confirmed separately.

If they don't agree, they can't proceed on registration. For us, it would be fine, if we could define a user field and tell the rule which field name to use.

The Forum Rules page loads as a blank page, I have VB 4.0.7 and VBSEO. Any idea why?

I can't manage any rules either, leads to a blank white page. I just downloaded the updated plugin today, I upgraded from the last version released in November.

EDIT-----

I re-imported the plugin and pages load correctly now.
