YaBB (Yet another Bulletin Board) is a freeware, visible source message board and instant messaging system written in Perl. YaBB utilizes a flat file system to store forum data, instead of a database management system, which has become increasingly common in forum software. The YaBB team encourages modifications of the board, and helps support the Boardmod community, which sprung up in response. YaBB was initially released on July 4, 2000.
With YaBB 2, one of the primary focuses for the development team was security. Many bulletin board systems suffer from similar attacks, such as cross-site scripting, and the team did not want YaBB to suffer from the same problems. Working with several groups of hackers, the team developed several new methods to prevent the most common attacks. Through this effort, the team has added flooding protections on many functions, a better banning system, proxy blocking, referrer blocking, dereferring on external links, harvester blocking, and several other types protections. A team member (Ron) decided to call this new system "The Guardian", as he did most of the work to create it.
Features of YaBB include posts, members, boards, categories, file attachments, private messaging, forum statistics, member banning, template configuration, email, unlimited smilies, member permissions (such as moderator, admin etc.), news fader, category permissions, board permissions, censored words and many, many more.
