It's been, what, 5 years? 6 years? An internet eternity, anyway, since the Talk.Origins Archive got hacked and its interactive scripts were nuked as a defensive measure. Wes noted that he was working on new scripts that would lack the old vulnerabilities, but it was (understandably!) not a high priority for him. Well, in view of low long it's been with little or no externally-evident activity, I have a suggestion: Why not start looking at existing Open Source CMSes? The attacks which crippled the Archive are probably known quantities by now, and there would be safeguards against those attacks; there would also be safeguards against however-many of the new attacks which evil-minded crackers have devised in the intervening time.
Yes? No?
