Ok.  I have ViPER Guestbook X1.2 / Detection Pack 1.0.1.    I log in to the admin section and notice that there is a new detection pack V1.1.0  available for download !  So I click on the ViPER Guestbook Website (http://www.vipergb.de.vu/) and found out that the "The ViPER Guestbook project is dead."

So, my question is, is there any another sources were I can download the latest detection pack V1.1.0.  




I really like Viper Guestbook and its ashame the project went south.

I went to the site you linked to and saw a bright red warning message that reads "It's strongly recommended to uninstall the script!"

This is probably due to major security problems in the script that would have taken far too much of the authors time to fix, so the project was abandoned.

If the author strongly recommends the removal of his script, he must have a reason for it, don't you think?

There are plenty of other guestbook scripts out there on the net, I would suggest searching through http://www.hotscripts.com  You're sure to find a good alternative.

Well maybe, but I am guessing its not available anymore because of the support.   For some time now, the support system has been falling apart.

If I chose to transfer to a new guestbook, I will just have my programmer build me a customize guestbook.  Thats what I am paying him to do.  LOL!!!

Thanks,
Adam
