Although the way phpBB stores passwords may be secure, the way it submits them, when someone is logging in, isn't. They're susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks, among other things. We have installed a hack to remedy this vulnerability.

When you go to login and you have saved your password in IE you will receive an error as seen below. Click NO and you will be logged in. If you click yes it will tell you that you have supplied a bad username or password.

This hack adds characters to your normal password. The board can decipher what is the actual password and what characters are the security feature.

Not all of you will see this error message only the ones who always type in the username and password to login will see this.

If anyone is having problems with this let me know, as with any third party hack this is experimental.
