The downloads link on the top of the site (not the downloads board under "Fractal Software") is missing unless you are logged in. So for the time being, only registered and logged-in members can download software from there. This is unintentionally, isn't it?

Bots, guests, unknown IPs, keep trying to break the SQL by sending requests for stuff that doesn't exist, or crafting bogus requests, fortunately that hasn't worked but they keep trying and I'm not going to let them keep trying because eventually they may find a hole, so yes it's intentional and that's not negotiable.

the Downloads section is for legitimate registered FF users only, it's not for guests, it's not for bots, it's not for anyone else.

...whoever might have caused those warnings has enabled this current state for the Downloads section, which has been done to keep the site safe and secure.


edit: the galleries boards (most) and topics are still visible by bots and guests,
