According to http://kb.mozillazine.org/Special:Version your server is seriously out of date:
MediaWiki 1.6.8 (not even the newest version of that branch, but 1.6 was EOL'd in early 2009)
PHP 4.4 (EOL'd in August of 2008)
MySQL 4.1.15 (EOL as of the end of 2009).

Why are you using such ancient and insecure software still?

Hello Frank,

For ecumenical reasons.

Did you really mean 'ecumenical' or did you, perhaps, mean economical?

Regards,

Dave.

I always mean what I write. The whole topic would be an ecumenical matter.

The whole topic would be an ecumenical matter.

Certainly, as opposed to being an ecclesiastical matter.

You can see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Release_notes/1.6 for information on security issues fixed in newer versions of the MediaWiki 1.6 branch. There's plenty of info on their website about changes in the other branches since then.

Also, "because it works" is the dumbest excuse ever for not updating something.

I assume then you are also using a horribly outdated version of phpBB because neither 3.1 nor 3.2 support PHP 4.4.

It doesn't matter why I care. The more important question here is why those who can do something about it don't care.

You're right, you can't even be bothered to register as a member.

I'll get your IP banned and end this nonsense.

Locking this thread as the OP hasn't bothered to register and the discussion is going nowhere.
