Topic: Do XennoBB problems = PunBB problems?

I notice that XennoBB - http://www.xennobb.com - a forum package based on PunBB code has been having problems recently keeping it's home site up, perhaps due to vulnerabilities - http://secunia.com/product/11262/ - reported in its code base.

I just wondered if Rickard was keeping an eye on this product to see if the vulns identified in Xennobb had any implications for the PunBB code base?

Re: Do XennoBB problems = PunBB problems?

I am keeping my eye on it. Neither of the two vulnerabilities discovered by Chris Boulton affect PunBB.

The important thing to realize is that XenoBB is mostly just PunBB with a lot of mods added. The "lot of mods added" part is where you'll see a lot of the security issues I believe tongue
