i am a member of the phpbb.com community and they have had a major melt down as a hacker had got into their servers and made public all the members details. i think all phpbb related forums should have a ALERT forum with details of the HACKER if they are caught with a name and shame to protect members details being compramised. even if other phpbb comuunities help each other to make sure everyone is notified as who is the attacker and give up to date news on progress of any legal matters the site owners have against that attacker.
I don't think an entire forum is needed for just that. We sure can post topics with datails to help each other out, yes we can. The problem is, we've never been hacked before...have we? They tried...but failed...muhaha
