Hey everybody -

Your password on the old forum for CoreSpeed3d.com were not secure. SPAMThe admin could see any password for any user that he wanted. SPAMThat was VERY not cool.

I am not sure if this bulletin board is more secure but I still do not trust anyone who would use something so not secure, wether they used it for evil or not. SPAMJust having that security flaw scares me.

Any admin, please feel free to respond. SPAM(OK D.)

Yabb automatically stores the passwords in an encrypted format in a data file.

yeah. alot of bb's (incluing phpbb) store it in a mysql db. Which can simply be retrieved with a php script(if you know mysql & php as much as I do)
