if you enable this , someone with the knowledge , could put a script in their sig file that could completely destroy your board and/or server.
are you getting the picture here.
I was told my techi michal that using my method to get dynamic images do not pose a security threat. (And as far as I know, cant be prevented).
I haven't tried any of this, and I am certainly no expert at all. However, if you can hide a image display php script in a folder named pic.gif, then what would get you from hiding a php script that would attack the server in that folder?
I don't know, it just seems logical to me.
anyway, good luck with it, personally, I would rather not see images in sig files anyway.
