Security Improvements
« on: March 05, 2012, 09:12:30 PM »
There have been many security upgrades in the last couple days.  If you see any weird anomalies with anything (especially uploading).  Let me know in this thread.

Looks like my recently uploaded images disappeared again.

It is driving me nuts.  Working on that issue now (along with the issue where some browsers can't download the maps right now (session issues)).  Also, some of the previously uploaded images were lost so those are getting added from the backup server.

Alright, image uploading works (to include the image you already uploaded; it was there it just wasn't accessible.

All planned changes have been implemented at this point.  So  before I re-enable some of the "babysitting" functions, report any errors :)

In John Le Carre's novels "babysitters" are the musclemen who "babysit" guests in safehouses.  Do your babysitting functions play a security role as well?

These babysitters do definitely play a security role as well :-D
