Dangerous BBcodes?

Post by robbie787 »

I hear a lot with other forums of xss attacks via bbcode. Which codes are safest and which are dangerous to have? I have disabled url and flash... are there any others I need to be aware of that are vulnerable? :?

All of the default BBCodes are safe. Theoretically, it might be possible to do some weird things with Flash but I'd consider it safe as well. You can leave it disabled if you want since Flash is basically dead already.
I wrote the thing that does BBCodes in 3.2.
