I do happen to know that PR 9 link are worth quite a bit, but I do not know how the money is being dispersed. I actually do know quite a bit about entities. Is phpbb a non profit corporation?
(note: I only asked if they are not for profit. It is up to them to disclose their status or others to guess. I would be willing to bet they are getting somewhere in the neighborhood of $20,000+ per month in revenue...not profit)
(Agreed about a non-profit not making money, but the employees are making money. I'm still not sure what type of entity phpbb is classified, and if they are indeed structured as a non-profit.)
you can setup a non-profit org and get a $250,000 salary provided you have enough money. I think it's just an IRS thing, where they get special privileges and have to follow certain guidelines. Many of those "credit fix" and debt companies are techincally non-profit, yet they make millions.
advertising on phpbb is stupid IMO, way too high profile and text "advertising" is not all kosher. Stay away from sites that G people are likely to visit is.
it's only a vulnerability if you use the cgi version (i.e. you can run the script from the web...)
where'd you hear awstats was the problem?
