SOLVED! (Adding underscores)_link_ and _layer_

SOLVED! (Adding underscores)_link_ and _layer_ 10 Years ago  
When I type the word link or layer on my forum it gets changed to _link_ and _layer_ for some reason, any ideas?
Also, on my dark template, when I edit a post you have the edit reason box, the text \"reason for editing\" is black on black.

Same with the word script on my forum.

This was to quickly avoid XSS attacks but I guess I made it a bit rigorous. You can reduce the elements by editing class.fireboard.php

Ok, found the line with these words, thanks for your help!
Any ideas on the dark template problem with the edit reason box?

Re:_link_ and _layer_ 10 Years ago  
Hmm. I do not know what a CSS attack is, but I know that the current behaviour makes many problems for my users.

What do you suggest as best method to get rid of the change of :blink: and words like uplink or unlinkable? Its kind of a mess now...

Re:_link_ and _layer_ 10 Years ago  
XSS attack sorry.

As I said, edit class.fireboard.php and remove the elements you dont want. search for \"script\".

Re:_link_ and _layer_ 10 Years ago  
No, _script_ is not found, without underscores yes.

I could live with the replacements, if it would not occur in the middle of a word, like un_link_able. Is there maybe a way to restrict replacements to whole words only? Would that be more secure than to just delete some words from the list in the mentioned class.fireboard.php?

I am no programmer; I just want to understand the effects of patching files in a production system.

Re:_link_ and _layer_ 10 Years ago  
Then another thing here. I noticed that the addition of underscores to the dangerous words takes place, even if the underscores were added before!

This, for instance, could happen if a message containing some of these words was edited. In the end you have ___________link___________.

The algorithm should be more specific and test of really dangerous conditions and leave the words alone in other situations, imho.

Re:_link_ and _layer_ 10 Years ago  
you can delete the first line as a whole. leave the second line.

Re:_link_ and _layer_ 10 Years ago  
Thats what I did, and it works well for the user.
I\'m just not sure if I am now vulnerable to this XSS attack thing!
