miniBB version 3.2.1
is a post-scriptum to 3.2
, but with even more security improvements, related to the admin account only. This release came up with the only kind help of Nicholas Sciberras from Acunetix
company. Nicholas made a few disclosures also on the default miniBB website, and verified the full version of miniBB with all add-ons, provided for tests on the demo website
This release makes us hope that miniBB, and its add-ons, start to stand up very closely to the high level secured forum software. Try to download
and upgrade it now. Only a few files are required to upgrade, the listing may be found under Upgrading History
file, as usually.
A few words about Acunetix: this company works out the scanning software, which could rape your website or program, online or offline with a set of hundreds, if not thousands, tricky tests, and build-up the list of very informative reports after-all. The most important issues it finds, are Blind SQL injections and XSS. It also gives recommendations regarding less important, but still notable security parts and vulnerabilities, which could be present on a website. Here on miniBB, we have plans to co-operate closely with Acunetix also for the future releases of miniBB. We take care about security at most. Any corporate customers should do as well. This scanner looks very promising and could protect your website from lots of problems even on the current stage.
Keep your forums healthy.
