I say IPB1.3, mainly because phpBB authors are not going to fix the current administrator remote exploits.

If your looking for security - IPB 1.3

If your looking for people exploiting your board - phpBB

edit: proof of concept: here & here, also just noticed 2.0.13 fixes these problems, but I heard different from a sucurity friends :/

As long as you have the latest version of phpBB, I can see no reason to be worried about exploits. :)

I'd personally go with phpBB. Olympus looks impressive...if it ever gets released.. :no:

Medievil: 1.3 is known to be secure for along time now, but even if an exploit comes out, someone will patch it.

phpBB is known to be full of holes, I suggest you backup statements.

Side Note: Phpbb doesnt have alot of admin options either.

Well all the boards you visit must not of upgraded to the latest version...

I suppose it's better for them to give updates rather than just leave security holes open.

Either IPB 1.3 or if you want a free upgrade path go with MyTopix. phpBB has had a lot of exploits recently and is also developing extremely slowly, it has slipped way down the ladder of BBs.

I think I read somewhere that GZIP is enabled server wide so it doesn't need to be enabled again in IPB or something like that....but I might be wrong.
