WowBB Activity Transfered to UltraBB

WowBB, a commercial forum software that had no activity since 2006, and really well known for its major security holes, has been acquired by UltraBB. UltraBB, also known as WowUltra, shares the same source base as WowBB, minus the security leaks.

The plan for WowBB lease users is quite simple: they are going to be migrated for free to the latest version of UltraBB 1.17. This is a good news for them, as the migration will be done by UltraBB team and the company behind Data 1 Systems, INC..

We do hope this is going to be the renewal of UltraBB and a good way to definitely forget about WowBB.

WowBB demonstration forum hacked

One week ago, the WowBB demonstration forum had been compromised and hacked. Its first page was replaced by a Turkish flag, so we suppose that the hacker came from this country.

This problem allows us to inform and prove that some forum softwares contains more security holes than other, and these kind of information will always be placed in first page, to let webmasters know which softwares are more secured.

For the moment, the WowBB installation is no longer activated, and a mail has been sent to WowBB developers to help them fix this problem.

About the same subject, an anti-spam and a captcha security have been installed on Forum-Software.org to prevent spam comments and incorrect users.
