So they released an updated version: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tapatal ... -s120.html

No specific mention of fixing the bug, probably because they don't want to publicly admit that they had this MAJOR security flaw.

Who wants to be the guinea pig and install the new version to see if it's fixed. I'm going to wait and see because I hate Tapatalk.

So I've had Tapatalk turned off now for nearly 3 weeks and I gotta say no one complained yet. Posting slowed down slightly but barely noticeable. There are less users on the forum but many people are still finding the site through Google.

Please don’t encourage people to use third party software especially when it’s faulty. This software failed phpBB approval years ago and since then they have not resubmitted supposedly because they can’t fix it.
