Forum security - how can you help?

Post#1 by brokenman » 15 Feb 2011, 08:27

After the recent incident i have taken measures to secure the forum a little more after restoring most of our information back to it's original state. A previous user database was restored and i am expecting glitches. Please PM me with any unexpected privileges or problems you may encounter.

How can you help with security?
Change your current password
Bookmark the login form using a https: secure prefix
Notify me of any new users with jibberish usernames (e.g rh4jqwq8) they will removed immediately
Notify me of any unusual activity

I was hoping we wouldn't have to worry about too much about rogue f-wits with a grudge against porteus, but it seems i must turn my attention a little more towards security. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Thanks for your patience.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
