  • Weird problem

    If someone posts something with this combination of letters:

    tar -

    they get a 403 Forbidden page. I am assuming this is because it is attempting to execute this as a command. We recently moved to a VPS hosting plan. Our board is using 3.0.9, but I do have a 3.5.4 test environment set up and it is a problem there too. I am just starting the upgrade and my test environment has only one modification installed (vbAdvanced).

    Any help is appreciated,

    This happens on an unhacked forum? If so this has to be something on your server causing this.
