Discuss: MyBB 1.1.4 Released
Dennis, in the admin CP, if I go to Manage Forums none of them are listed. But they are in the DB though. Any ideas?

Found the problem. The bugger (cracker) deleted 1/2 my forums. I dropped the table, restored from a backup, and fixed the cache, and they now appear. Whew.

What a time waster. Surely all script kiddies go to hell right?
Yes, I would sign a partition to deport all script kiddies, crackers and cyber criminals to hell, if such a partition existed. Unfortunately, the worlds governments will never come together to fix the problem. And God hasn't been answering his emails lately.

How about automatic updater/patcher which users can run via cronjob. It should be a good choice for non-hardmodded (plugins exemption ofcourse) mybb forums. Well, it will need the files to be chmoded to webserver writable so this won't be the best choice for the users running in a shared environment where php_basedir or safe mode isn't in effect. Well who cares about them, coz they aren't safe anyways as their configuration file is exposed to everyone on the server.

err.. Went a bit off-topic here. Keep up the good work with security updates.
Asad_Niazi, the php files would need to be writable by the user the cron job is run as.
You're right... I actually had the one-click updates (from ACP) in mind too when I talked about a cronjob.
We may also be considering releasing plugins as a method of patching the forums in the near future.

You mean just as a temporary fix until the next release, right? I don't fancy the idea of having 20 plugins sitting there just as security patches over a period of years.
Of course. I'd assume that at every major version you'd upgrade all the files, and thus would have the vulnerability patched in the code.

The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.
