Joomla PCChess Component for Joomla 1.5

Deutsche Version

I have ported the pcchess component from Robert Prince from Joomla 1.0 to  Joomla 1.5 . Special thanks to Fjodor Schäfer an the Dauerschach Community for donating to the port . I fixed all Security Issues of the old release and advice all users of versions <= 0.8 to update their installation immidiately or disable the component. If you have security concerns please contact me.

Please Note:

Install the component as usual. Include the wanted styles from  pcchess.css in the component directory into your Site Stylesheets. The file is the general language file in english. If you have a translation ( see sample file ) please send it to me to include it in the distribution.



09.04.2010 SECURITY WARNING: There is a Security Hole reported  for PCChess. This does not affect the Joomla 1.5 Release on this Website. I advise all users of the old Joomla 1.0 Release (<= 0.8 ) to immidiately disable PCChess and upgrade to the current stable release. I take security issues very serious and tested the mentioned expoit, but it didn't work out on my systems. Please check yourself. If you need assistance you can hire me to support you.

08.04.2010 I have installed a demo and test server to show the current development version and to provide additional possiblilities like a helpdesk. Have a look at the Demo Site and register yourself as user to access the helpdesk and place your bug reports or feature requests.

 30.03.2010  Version 0.9: Marian Tanase send me a translation of the language file in italian, I have included it in the package. Thanks to Marian for his work.
