Forums upgraded to phpBB 3.1

Post by Edge100x » Wed Jul 29, 2015 11:44 am

We've upgraded the forums to phpBB version 3.1 (from 3.0.x) and moved them to http://forums.nfoservers.com, for security reasons.

We're still tweaking the theme -- our old theme didn't transfer directly over and we had made various modifications to streamline it over the years.

Does this have to do with recent events?

Should we also change our forums password?

Bubka3, yes, it does. I will post more about that shortly -- I'm still sorting through the data.

I would recommend changing all passwords used here at NFO. The forums should store them salted and hashed, but that does not mean that they can't be brute-forced.

Glad to be at a place that keeps on top of things more than any other service I've ever payed for. I feel like family here. Cheers.

Awesome!

Now the only thing I need to worry ISIS logging into my account from Syria. Because it isn't at all suspicious if there's such a huge contrast in the previous IP address. :oops:
