Post subject: Could I ask some questions about a few Mods?

Well, I've installed a few Mods on my forum. I'm setting up an avatar site, so I must ensure that none of these Mods have any bad, exploitable glitches.

Would it be alright if I posted a list of the Mods I've installed and have you tell me if you've heard of any such glitches or if it's okay?

First place to look is the page where you downloaded the respective MODs... That's where the people who would know would be. You should ALWAYS bookmark the source page for a MOD, so that you can look for updates at regular intervals.

Short answers: If it loads include files, it might be vulnerable. If it has user-enterable fields associated with it, it might be vulnerable. If it accepts uploaded files from users and saves them to an area that is accessible via the web, it might be vulnerable.

On the other hand, if it works entirely within the variables already read in by phpBB, it is less likely to be vulnerable.

I'm familiar with a lot of MODs, so go ahead and list them out. icon_smile.gif

[espicom]

The only thing is that the main ones in question are Zarath mods, and I've looked over the Phpbb site but it seems as though all his threads on the subject have either been deleted, moved, or the main post edited and a lot of posts apparently deleted. D:

NulAvatar needs some fixes when have over 1,000 items, and there's also a way to equip items which you don't own. Cash Mod is A-OK, being the only officially validated MOD in that list. All the Zarath MODs are probably OK. ADR has a few minor problems, so you should probably check this site to see what's new and happening.

Good luck with your site.

    What kind of fixes?

    Would it be posted on NulAdion's site, even though it's been abandoned forever? XD


    Yeah, I'm looking over the ADR site now looking for anything severe. >.<


    Thanks so much for the help! :D

No, there hasn't been anything posted. A site I work for uses Nulavatar, so I was commissioned to make some changes to it.

    Ah, okay. :3

    I'll look into it on my own, but if I start to inch up to around 800-900 items, I'll definitely contact you. :3

    Thanks! :D

Nuladion abandoned the mod and is working for a different website now.

He said he wont be going back to working on NulAvatar.. Sadly.

Was CashMod ever vulnerable? At one point I put all my cashmod admin files into a clone admin folder with secret name because I was convinced people could manipulate cash or something like that without being admin. I probably could have put a password on the admin folder instead.

Was this my imagination as I'm sure people had this problem? Was it fixed? Also is it possible for admin files to be insecure like this so non admins could use them?

Cash MOD has been around since 2003, so there might have been problems way back then, but today, there don't seem to be any.

If you don't mind my asking, what kind of changes does nulavatar need? icon_redface.gif
Because right now I'm at 885 images, and about to add a bunch more.

Thanks.

I'm going to be posting them in a few days.

The summary is: if you've got the option where a user must have a certain item in his inventory to be able to use an image, then Nulavatar ends of looping over every single item instead of just the ones in this user's inventory. This loop is done on every layer, and there is an SQL query inside each loop as well. Here is a longer, more detailed explanation.

But like I said, I've got the fix for this problem and some other problems with Nulavatar, so I'll post them in a few days.

Wow.. I knew nulavatar can have lots of queries.. but I had no idea about the loops thing. icon_eek.gif
Safe to say I look froward to you posting the fixes. icon_smile.gif

Thanks.
