Definitely make this change. It is very easy, the lines are near the top of the file, you won't even have to scroll down to see it most likely. This is a very important fix.

And to Jeff, I just got my 3rd email notifying me of this post... not sure if this was intentional or not, but just fyi...

OK, I take it it I got 3 announcements in an hour for a reason. Hopefully nothing's being exploited and Jeff just wants to make sure people get the message...

Wow, currently online: 279 Guests, 108 Users

Hopefully everybody got the message now.  :)

Jeff, you should maybe lock these new 3 threads such that the discussion is focussed in the original thread.

mmmm... you mean these 4 new threads?

Is this really Jeff doing this, or is someone having a bit of fun? I have to admit, the emails are starting to get a bit excessive...

Yes, 7 emails is waaaay too much. As I said, I'm all for security, but I am also for a nice and tidy inbox..

Well, this will achieve two things anyway:

(1) everyone will apply the security fix now
(2) everyone will disable e-mail announcements having recieved the 9 e-mails so far, so if there is something important in future no-one will know about it.

Ah well.

Oops sorry. I went out and I guess it looped or something...will have to see if soeone was messing with the code here for the mass mailings.

Maybe now at least people will apply this fix? It's very important and some people have choosen to ignore it and have been hit...
