Some of us can do an awful lot with a command line. In some ways it's *way* more efficient than a GUI :P

I can also get into way more trouble with a command line than I can a GUI heh

Most of my dos capabilities sneaked out of my brain years ago. But it was fun back then, tweaking config.sys etc.

[...] SMF 2.1 is forced to reject a file for an attachment (unsupported file format, file to large, file seems to be infected), [..] improved our file checks so SMF can protect your members from infection while rejecting far fewer files. [..]
Interesting how exactly can it check a file for virus infections? ???

SMF 2.0 already does it to a certain degree.

It's a little bit disingenuous to call it 'virus infection' because it isn't.

It primarily checks for things like images containing scripts when they shouldn't, which is a known injection method for getting malware onto a computer.

I haven't noticed that feature actually, good to know that it exist.

Interesting.  Was this after RC4?  Where is the code located?

Forum Firewall for 2.0X also checks for the same type of thing, possibly a little more, as it scans your system once a week.
I have been truly inspired by the SUGGESTIONS as I sit on my throne and contemplate the wisdom imposed upon me.

This was added in RC4. Though apparently the post here suggests it was changed again in 2.1.

It would be great if someone would've conducted security tests against built-in SMF security features and 3rd party protection like forum firewall to see how useful they actually are, like we're doing on other non-PHP security products. Twice as great with comparison to other concurrent bulletin boards . The same about Cloudflare security mechanisms, they're flaunting and advertising their protection, but how much does  all of it actually works in real world, we don't know. I know that dedicated application firewalls (like from Barracuda) have protected a lot of servers, at least, against SQL attacks, but hard to say how much useful are above mentioned products.

I just created a Free Discussion Board with 2.0.6 version, and I'm now waiting to up-to-date it to 2.1 ASAP!
I am so curious to see what news will really be in the new version you're coding these days...  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:

Never mind the fact that you can - if you want to - grab it right now from Github, with the understanding that things are broken, unfinished and not going to receive support...
