Forum permissions - octarine - 2013-08-27

I have some forums on my site - www.equus-online.co.uk - that were admin / mods only - all other groups were excluded - all permissions turned off for those fora.

My site logger has recently shown non registered users accessing those fora and spending some time on them - when I logout I cannot even see those fora on the index.

How is it possible for a guest user to see these fora?

As a security measure I have now deleted those fora and replaced them with an empty forum with the same permissions if you want to test whether without registereing you can see it.
