Earlier today someone attempted to upload a binary file to the website through the forum file upload feature. This feature only enabled for ANSI text files to be uploaded as it was, but it was made known to me upon further inspection that this area could still be exploited for malware injection. We further checked, and in total there have been less than 3 times it has been used, in over 4 years. As a result we decided to eliminate it entirely.
