Forums are down again. I put them back up yesterday after upgrading to the newest version of phpBB, which is supposed to contain all kinds of security upgrade. And just now, I checked my e-mail and discovered that someone was sending out spam under the guise of an admin message from the forums. I checked the headers to see if it had actually come from the board, and it looked like it did — and from under my username at that.

I checked the board itself, and someone had completely deleted the Calyx and Commons forums, lumped all the others into the Et Cetera category, and created four new forums of their own.

So, admin password is changed (again), and the board is disabled until I can do some more investigating.

I am also seriously considering just switching to a different forum program entirely… I am getting really sick of dealing with non-stop security headaches with phpBB.
