There was a vulnerability discovered earlier today that could have resulted in an sql injection attack on our forums.

 

While waiting for the forum publisher's install to come back online, I made the decision to take these forums offline to prevent a possible issue should someone have decided to use the vulnerability to exploit the boards.

 

I have now been able to get access to the forums to download the patch, and can confirm we are now safe from this vulnerability.

 

I apologise for any inconvenience caused during the downtime, but I personally felt it was better to take the boards down rather than risk someone gaining acccess that they should not have.
