    Hmm, this is why I do not buy $300 dollar software or however much that costs. Free solutions are always better, as this is the largest security hole I have seen in a forum software before. I do not see how something could be overlooked like that, an average joe could delete your forum.

    I am smart with money online, If I cannot physically touch what I am buying that costs that much, I do not get it at all.

    Thankfully that exploit was on a different version of VB than the one we are using here on BAF. I've been quite disappointed by VB on different occasions recently. The new owners seem more intent on squeezing as much money as they can from their customers, than they are on providing a quality product and service. Hopefully they will improve.
