Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 RC1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Question Tools to find malware URLs in forum

4 years 8 months ago #1 by robdotinfo
Just received a message from a user:

opened a link in the forum (pretty sure it was the surfski school in glebe) and copped a ransom ware virus. Might be worth checking. Lost all pictures , music , documents and about 8 hours cleaning it out. Not certain which link but malwarebytes went berserk when I rechecked my history.

I've manually looked through all the recent threads and can find no suspicious looking links.

I'm very careful about who I let onto the forum - first two posts are moderated and since I switched that on, I've had no spammers on the site.

It's possible that this guy found a very old thread that had a URL to a bad site on it. I'm not sure why his browser security didn't pick it up.

Are there any tools where I can scan all the posts in the forum to look for bad URLs?

Any other advice on what to do would be welcome - if a rumour gets out that the site links to ransomware, I'm toast!
