    I just noticed this when viewing the users today.

    Unknown Location???

    Anyone know what it means?

    Well that particular URL means someone is trying to hack your system. You really should delete ImpEx from your server if you are not using it right now.

    However "Unknown Location" simply means the user is accessing a page that there is no "Who's Online" entry for.

          Thanx. I've never used it so guess I don't need it??? Unless you mean it is used to import avatars, graphics, etc, into posts.

          Where is it and how do I delete it???

          Thanx in advance.

          There's now two more of these in the list of users with different IP addy's.

            It will be in the impex Directory on your site. You can just delete the entire directory. And it has nothing to do with avatars or graphics in posts.

              There is no such directory that I can find. I looked everywhere under the Forums directory and the root directory.

              So, am I safe from being hacked with VB 3.6.7?

              My site is still working fine.

                You should be as long as its the latest version and you have .htaccess on your critical directories.
