Kunena 5.1.10 Released - Security release (03 Mar 2019)

The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.10 [K 5.1.10] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.1 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.1. This is a security release.

× Topics must relate to a currently supported version of Kunena. If you are unsure what is the current supported version of Kunena, please go to the download page.

If you are having problems then, for your own benefit, it would save us all a lot of time if you would kindly post your configuration report when you ask for help from this forum. If you do not post your configuration report we will not ask you for it but you will probably not get your problem solved, either.

Our forum is set up in this way, guests can see certain categories but cannot post, non-members can see certain categories and post, members can see all categories and can post.

A post has been put up by someone called anonymous as their username and a rank of visitor. We don't have a visitor rank first of all and I cannot see one in kunena. I have checked the IP address and comes back as a reported spammer.

How is this possible and what can we do to stop it. I have blocked the IP address but concerned that someone has posted without the necessary permissions or am I missing something here, help would be very much appreciated.

Why do not you ban visitors from writing?
If you set that only registered users are allowed to write, this can not happen.
