Maybe just me but when I visit this site with Firefox it tells me it's a reported attack site. And it does seem to be doing odd stuff when you load the page sometimes. Sometimes it even makes Firefox freeze. Image

to report it's not an attack site: ... st%26f%3D6

Yeah, Google reports it, too... ... D637&hl=en

Can we clean it up?

Yeah, it looks okay now. Not on the blacklist anymore which is awesome news. :)
So how do you think it got infected in the first place? Can we avoid that somehow in the future?

Just wondering, is there anyway to increase upload space? 500 KB is not a lot....

Trying to delete a ton of attachments to make room for a 1KB text document.:P

I think it is going to be swiftly reflagged as an attack site. There is abviously something wrong again.

Yeah, IPB is definitely NOT the way to go. As for which replacement to use. I am thinking phpBB3 for the following reasons:
1) I already have it installed and configured (after the issues from a few days back)
2) this article ... -vbulletin
3) SMF is not that actively developed (they don't care to update the site - - it still says 2011 at the bottom and we'll soon enter 2013...)
4) I've used phpBB3 before, it's free, easy to use and if updated often enough there are no relevant issues using it.
5) It seems there won't be lots of ppl helping me do it as Poiuy says he's busy the following weeks and Heinermann, I guess, won't be that interested in managing a forum. Heinermann?

So if no free, steady alternative to phpBB3 is presented here with some good arguments, I am moving the forum to phpBB3 these days
