Site trying to download itself

Postby NCC1966 » Thu Mar 30, 2017 8:49 pm

Today the forum started a weird behavior: instead to process it is trying to download the PHP pages...

It's important to check it ASAP because it may compromise security!

:shock:
Thanks,

Yan.

Saw that as well. Fixed or I would not be posting.

I had another issue around 2 hours ago. Seems that it is still unstable. May be the server that is failing.
Thanks,

Yan.

OK, forum seems to be fixed unless by ONE case where the problem seems happen ALWAYS (at least for me either in the computer as well in the mobile phone): every time I click the "Board index" link it tries to download the "index.php" file.

The turn around to load the board and avoid it to happen is to click the big header picture instead.

;)
Thanks,

Yan.

Just passing by to warn the administrators that the problem of site download "index.php" when clicking over the "Board index" link (top left) still persists. Please do NOT ignore this as it is a major security issue as it reveals database names, SQL queries and also the internal code that renders the main page. You should fix it ASAP.

If you cannot fix it is preferable to hide the breadcrumbs (the line at top-left with the upper arrow and the path showing where the visitor is in the site). This is an easy configuration that can be a safe patch at least until you figure out the download problem.

Anyway, I won't warn about this anymore. I just wanted to let you know that it is not something to forget about.

:vulcan:
Thanks,

Yan.
