  • Security Problem: Wordpress site copies my forum

    Hi everybody,

    I use vb 3.8 and have a security problem. A wordpress driven website is copying my forum. The website always uses only the first post of a forum topic and converts it somehow to a wordpress post. The website includes deeplinks to forum pictures. I believe the website is abusing the RSS feeds somehow. Take a look for yourself:

    Copy: http://alpenblog.bplaced.net/2010/03...von-schlieper/

    Original: http://forum.odoo.tv/feststehende-me...schlieper.html

    I contacted the domain owner today but I am not sure if this helps. Is there any way to protect people from stealing my forums content through rss? Can I protect the pictures / attachments from deeplinking?

    You're providing a RSS2 feed, that seems to be providing alot of content. You could prevent guests from seeing forums, though this makes it so google/etc won't be able to list you either.

    Your attachments are protected from hotleaching by requiring logins. But its pretty much impossible to prevent them from being linked to on your website.

      Is there any way to limit the content provided? Maybe to only provide the 'Title' but not the content of a post.

      Only on the forums website. This guy is copying my complete posts including the deeplinks. On his website my files are not protected anymore. Is there a way to prevent third party websites accessing my attachments, but let vb still access them?
