URGENT: paFileDB exploitable to spammers
« on: September 05, 2005, 09:02:18 AM »
I've just had a very unpleasant holiday morning, as I discovered that my sites (all on my account) had been suspended due to some <insert lots of profanity here> spammer has exploited my pafiledb.php script.

The problem is patchable, and the patch is available here:

Admin/Mod, please make this a sticky, as this is the most free popular download script in use today.
