      An upgrade to software used by the forums has just been completed.
      Down-time was around 10 seconds.
      This upgrade should not impact service.
      Please let us know if you see problems or issues.
      If you can't reply, you can email us at defconforums@gmail.com

        Victory!

        As part of the ongoing system maintenance and security improvements I've been using the "least privileged" model, and just now I've managed to get every process needed to run the forums executing as a non-privileged user. Woo! That was necessary because it is the foundation to the next series of security improvements.

        For now I'll let things run this way and keep an eye on logs. As usual if you see or notice anything good or bad please let us know to investigate.

          So far so good, so we will move on to the next set of security enhancements.

        Looks like it caused a problem with picture uploads. It's been fixed and the hunt continues by number6 to find other issues.

            Work was done to clean up issues related to improved security preventing new avatar and new attachments from being made available to browsers.
            Please let us know if either of these re-surface or if the applied fixes break other things which were working.
            Thanks!
