You can be frustrated at us all you want. But just remember, most of us have other jobs and this is just a volunteer run site. Besides that, we cannot post a fix for the modification either. The only person who may post a fix is the one who released it or the person who they give permission to take over the modification. We have not even looked through the code to see how many areas need to be fixed. We found one place, and someone let us know of another, but we have not gone through the code to find out if it is only in those two places or in several places. It isn't our job to do that. It is our job to quarantine it if one security issue is found and then to let the coder go through their code a bit more carefully before releasing it again.

Has anyone in this thread contacted the developer to ask to take over the modification and fix it?

As he has not logged in and is not accepting emails then that could be a problem.

Lol, I really cant see the logic in getting your knickers in a twist because you are using a FREE modification built by someone that has taken THEIR time to build. Then trying to get someone else who is also a volunteer to spend their time to fix it for you.

There is a reason there is paid services section of this site, no one should every be at a point where they rely on something they got for free and rely on people that do things for free , people loose interest, become ill, have other commitments and guess what ? they have no incentive to come back and fix the problem.

Dont get me wrong i understand the frustration and often get annoyed by things disappearing which were otherwise very useful but if these things do happen you can't expect other people to pick up the peace's because you are in a muddle..

Why don't you all just use iTrader 2.5.0 ? And stop using the vB 4.x series.

If you want to pay someone to fix it, you should not be asking in this thread, you should be posting the in the Request for Paid Services forum.

hum, actually, i'm taking over back the modification as the author of the newer version is nowhere to be found...

i'll have to check with Lynne to have access to the quarantine thread and see the report on the bug found to fix it and re-release my engine in a newer version...

Thanks for that post. Can anyone confirm that they have now installed this patch, and that iTrader is working on 4.1.10?

Yes entertain did provide a fix for the mod this morning, I am giving it a quick look-over to make sure it fixed the exploits we knew about and assuming it does will restore the itrader mod out of quarantine.
