Tricks Tricks:
So my 30 seconds of work was for nothing? This is horseshit.

Agree, I'm stuck with the red ensign and not the totally cool llama avatar I wanted.

Dumping the inactive users will only remove their ability to log in, won't remove their posts or uploaded pics. As others have pointed out, that doesn't free much space at all.
I'd suggest removing pics 5 years or older, but I don't think a PhpBB admin can to do that, you'd need server admin rights to access the image directory and remove the actual files.

I mean, lets be realistic, I'm sure this site has gaping security holes. I'm sure I or one of my colleagues could accidentally gain access to the drive or get server admin rights.

With many bits of software that fell out of scope 10 years ago?

If you couldn't, you shouldn't be in your job. ;)

Are the downloaded pics stored in the database or in a filesystem?

In a file directory, db references it.
site/images/avatars/upload for llama66
site/files for the rest

But this is an ancient and highly mod'd version of PhpBB on a Windows server, I only run new versions on Linux machines so I can't say fer sure. You'd need access to cPanel-File Manager or FTP to remove them.

It's just mildly illegal.

Also I'm an infrastructure guy, others are better at web application. But I'm learning.

I remember the debates about PenTesting decades ago. Is it really illegal, if you break in and fix things up? :twisted:

Per the letter, maybe. Per the spirit? I don't think so.

No, it's always illegal. :( Unless like Tricks, you are hired to break in, and there there is only a limited and pre-defined scope to that break in.

Sadly.

$1:
342.1 (1) Everyone is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term of not more than 10 years, or is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction who, fraudulently and without colour of right,

(a) obtains, directly or indirectly, any computer service;

(b) by means of an electro-magnetic, acoustic, mechanical or other device, intercepts or causes to be intercepted, directly or indirectly, any function of a computer system;

(c) uses or causes to be used, directly or indirectly, a computer system with intent to commit an offence under paragraph (a) or (b) or under section 430 in relation to computer data or a computer system; or

(d) uses, possesses, traffics in or permits another person to have access to a computer password that would enable a person to commit an offence under paragraph (a), (b) or (c).


I had that drilled so hard into my head in school I think I could recite it.
