    No one on the internet knows my real name or address and as for my email address they can have it if they want.

    Older versions of IPB were relatively easy to get other peeps passwords and what not but i would imagine they are more secure now.

    Its quite poss, without hacking or anything to find out my name, and the town where i live. This makes it incredibly easy to find me, especially considering there are also photos of me out there.

    But what the hell, it makes no odds to me if people know who i am or not...

    Do not fear, the php man is here&#33; Anyways, to answer your question, it is nearly impossible to hack IB from a remote location... now, if they got onto the server via SSH, and managed to crack the passcode to the database (which I change monthly on my site... hehe... I programmed a little php script to do it for me ), that would be a whole different story. Well, anyways, back to tending to my LaRgE collection of MP3&#39;s... lol... ttyl.

    I could not see the riaa owning this board.

    They would never be able to do it legally even if they get the right to attack people who share online.

    There will always be security holes in this forums software. And there is nothing that vb, jon or paul can do about it.

    but as long as they stay up to date the risk is much less.

    What are you talking about? The RIAA offered &#036;10k to VB last month for this board...Of course he accepted the offer... LOL just kidding =)

    As far as I know everything here is pretty secure...I have a unique password on the db I don&#39;t use anywhere else...quite long too...
