QuoteBut you **DO** want it to "work" -- in that you are still using it and allowing people to access it (even in read-only)Since you have it running, there are potential, KNOWN, security issues that could allow a hacker to get access to your server. (additionally, I believe there are KNOWN security issues in old, deprecated versions of php which are required to run SMF 1.0.x)So, if you want your *SERVER* (with everything else on it) to be secure, you need to upgrade. Period.
