            The End of APB
            L. Brandon Stone, the original author of APB, has decided to move on to other projects and has given his blessing to a code branch under a new name. Interested PHP developers are welcome to visit the old message board for info on the new project developing from what remains of APB.

            just a reminder
            this is common sense, howerver: if you follow the upgrade instructions in the README.txt, DON'T FORGET to either backup your apb.php or remember what your settings were...

            you'll be much happier that way ;)

            Re: Totally Unsecure

            I was first made aware of this security issue a few days ago (on Sunday, March 9th, 2003) and that day I promptly updated the APB homepage and the "version check" page with warnings. I also removed the TAR/GZ and ZIP files as an added measure.

            I am currently working on a patch that I hope to release in the next couple of days. I will also be working on a new APB release which will be more compatible with the latest versions of PHP and will work with "register globals" turned off.

            Thank you to those who have pointed out this issue. I'm doing what I can to fix it.

            Totally Unsecure

            DO NOT USE THIS SOFTWARE!!! Someone hacked my website, starting by this software. It used the register_globals 'bug' to include a remote PHP and install a bindshell software on my server!

            Only use this software if the author stop using globals.

            The best
            Easy to use, powerful, simple to install. Need I say more? I love being able to access my bookmarks from any computer anywhere. The search function is especially useful once you start adding a lot of links. It is nice to research things at work, bookmark them, and then rediscover them easily on the weekend. Great geek tool. =]
