I have recently become aware of a security flaw in the core version of the forum software we are running here. As yet there is no formal fix for this so I have implemented a temporary fix. Shocked

I hope that no one will notice any adverse effects from this but there is a chance that some posts which use BBCode to display images or link to other sites may not work. You may also notice raw BBCode in the posts, e.g. you may see [url] embedded in a post.

As soon as a formal fix is available I will upgrade the forum software and everything should be back to normal.

If you do not know what BBCode is, then you can probably just ignore this post Smile and ignore any strange text in square brackets.

The forum software has been upgraded to include a formal fix for the security flaw along with several other minor fixes.
