I use phpBB and despite the frightening reports of security breaches, it
is a very good system, imho. The phpBB development team usually has fixes
very quickly for any problems. I personally would not mind if they took
what they know about forums and started from scratch and made something
that is XHTML and CSS 2.0 compliant. However, it is a fine product with
an enormous and responsive community.
Where you are using it internally, security should not be a concern, and
if it is, you need to rethink who you are hiring.
