Re: Xoops On Crack?
of course they have bothered!! why wouldn't they have?
what has been done? well the protector module helps, and if you read the rest of the pages you'd know that protector will be integrated into the core. other things have been done, 18.104.22.168 included lots of security related fixes, XOOPS 22.214.171.124 also improved more on security..
underlying problem? well nothing is 100% secure, you fix 1 security issue and some1 always finds another way to circumvent it.. try downloading the source yourself, look at it, and if you spot any issues then report them in the proper manner (that's if you're capable and knowledgeable to do so) it's not an easy task to spot flaws.. and well this last 2 weeks alone as seen more seen security issues related to apache, and other other server software etc.. so nobody is perfect in their programming..
it's alright for you to say what is being done about it and to be honest i don't know how you can actually say that nothing is being done about it or make a remark about whether the core team have bothered to do anything about it.. and btw nobody here calls themself a 733t coder
if you have some suggestions then suggest them. i'm sure the dev site and the sourceforge will give ou more info if you bother to read them before making your presumptions.
if a security issue wasn't known to the team then how the hell can they fix it, security is high on the priority list and always has been.
