malware?
« on: May 25, 2019, 04:08:03 AM »
I am moving a forum to a new host. They suspect some files are malware. Can anyone confirm this?

without seeing the actual files content we cant tell you anything.
what host are you using that is flagging these files?
also which version of SMF are you using?

Ask them what malware they think it is.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.
