Poor deployment of security patches by administrators and the growing popularity of programs like phpBB are to blame, Netcraft said.
On Jan. 30, a bulletin board run by chip maker AMD was compromised by hackers and was used to distribute malicious code.
Those who visited the site, forums.amd.com, were prompted to download a file that exploited a recently patched vulnerability in Windows code used to process WMF (Windows Meta File) format image files, according to anti-virus firm F-Secure Inc. in Helsinki.
So can we buy BestBBS v3.39
I'm sure this is one of the reasons you can't buy it.
In fact, if it were my software, I wouldn't sell it for this very reason.
Part of the problem with security is having your software on someone elses PC, where, in a local setting, exploits can be more easily uncovered.

If the issue is purely security, then I choose phpBB2. It has been hacked that often that it is the most tested, the most secure.
