Re: Guests cannot view Forums and register

it turned out to be 80legs bot. admin used their officially recommended 008 string and it matched Gecko/20080410 :( we now use 008/ that still matches their user agent

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; 008/0.83; http://www.80legs.com/spider.html;) Gecko/2008032620

Re: Guests cannot view Forums and register

We have narrowed the problem down to user agent string. This is original laptop string that causes the problem: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.14) Gecko/20080410 SUSE/2.0.0.14-0.4 Firefox/2.0.0.14 This is Chrome string set on laptop via about:config/general.useragent.override: Mozi...

Re: Guests cannot view Forums and register

Is there really a point in image confirmations?

I mean, look what they have now. I say, image confirmations is as archaic as bow and arrows.

Instaban (button of death)

I've looked through http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/catdb.php?cat=52 and found nothing similar yet, so. let's say, admin (or moderator) identifies a post as spam. then, there is that button in the post, and our good guy presses it. board carries out following actions: kills all posts by this user; bans a...

Plus, the malicious code part is only possible if you learn where the exploit lies, which isn't in GDS. This is simply false. Imagine a program that erases each and every file on your hard drive. Malicious? Hell yes. Exploit? No, perfectly legitime OS calls. You'll be unable to call GDS from a webs...

You guys think like you never wrote malicious code. There's your problem. In my school, it was, as you say it, "kewl" to code a virus. So we all did (please, don't take this post to a court room, pleeease). Because, as noted in the article (who ever reads those these days? :roll: ) GDS will ignore a...

Google did it again!

A hacker has found a way to trick Google Desktop Search to reveal personal data [ details ]. Note that hacker puts emphasis on the fact that vulnerability is, actually, in IE and not in GDS. But, think about it: Google encourages you to install GDS. This software, together with misc. plug-ins, recei...

found it : In an interview with NPR late last week, Sony BMG's Global Digital Business President Thomas Hesse downplayed the recent DRM fiasco saying he objected to terms such as malware, spyware and rootkit.
