Hello and Forum Security Issues

Hi
I have been lurking on this forum for quite some time, but purchased a lovely secondhand Mirage45 that I will be renovating over the next couple of years.
I think I will have lots of questions, so I thought I better introduce myself.

I work as an Internet security consultant and I have been surprised how unsecure forums are.

In a few key taps I could gain access to hidden areas of this forum.

The moderators forum is particularly interesting.

Click the link below to gain access. You will need the passwords below.

Interesting first post, but as someone with a little IT experience no surprise.

That must be one of the mods springing out of the box...

Re: Hello and Forum Security Issues

Ok I have had my fun for the year.

Now I will have to practice some self flagellation for breaking a couple of forum rules.

For those with a keen eye the user name is gullible backwards.

It was great to see the multitude of April fool jokes on CF, thanks to all those that started the threads and the posters that went along with them.

I hope everyone had a great day.
