Topic: Greater security as a 1.3 goal?
I know secure code is everyone's goal nowadays, but is it an explicit goal of the punBB 1.3 dev effort to improve on the security of punBB?
1.2.14 seems pretty good and stable, but I am worried that 1.3 - with its hundreds of new hooks, it's new this, new that - could also open a few new doors to exploitation.
I write this after reading in the latest SANS Consensus Security Alert (http://www.sans.org/newsletters/risk/) of a batch of new exploits for common forum packages (but not punBB so far). They just keep coming, and all popular forums are pretty much under constant onslaught.
It would be nice to think extra security awareness was in 1.3, balancing out its new features...
