Problem with forum

Postby Clarkesworld Books » Tue Jun 28, 2005 8:00 pm

Looks like you are still using an old version of phpBB here and someone has hacked it. Every time you go to the main forum index it attempts to send a file to your computer. Your best bet is a backup of the data and a reinstall (from scratch) of phpBBs latest version (2.0.16).

I've had this happen to me, so I'm speaking from experience.

You're welcome. Well, it looks like it isn't trying to send me files anymore, so I'd say you fixed that particular problem.
