It was called ._class_parser.php, but when I checked the file it didn't contain any PHP code but just some unreadable garbage. I'm now wondering if some idiot actually tried hacking our forums or was this just a corrupt file?

Forums still work great though, I'm just wondering if this could have been some hacker trying to use the exploits described in this announcement?

I have this file also, but it was uploaded the same day that I uploaded everything else when I changed hosts, so I agree with tmhai that it's from the ftp software.

Anyway, I upgraded and the SEO mod seems to be working, as well as my index page, so the upgrade was successful.

tmhai Wrote:You will need to UPGRADE your forum.

To do so, download the complete 1.2.11 package, and follow the upgrade procedures as outlined here: [Wiki: Upgrading] (Broken link, head over to docs.mybb.com instead)

You need to upgrade because 1.2.10 required an upgrade. Doing so using the latest download package will also patch your forums from the security issues as outlined by this release.

Thank you thmai, then i will do that asap. As for my translated swedish language files, are they affected in any manner by this upgrade?

If you're upgrading from 1.2.9, then yes, some language files were adding or modified and you'll need to re-translate those files.

That file is actually the result of Mac OS X or some form of Linux doing some work. No need to worry about it. Just delete it. It does nothing.

Upgrade went great as usual for me Smile I had to in the end download a complete copy off the front of the site because my windows extractor wouldn't work with the changed files zip. The full version un-packed fine though.


Regards

Oh and thank you Wink

I had that issue using ICEOWS, I had to download PeaZip to be able to extract the changed files archive.
