About Secunia Forums

The Secunia Community Forum is the place where Secunia users and community members can share knowledge and discuss on topics such as - patching, product updates, vulnerability threats, exploits, and anything that is IT security related.

Forum handlers

Secunia officials can now promote selected users to become a “Handling Contributor”, a title which provides administrative privileges, such as the ability to move and close threads, as well as increased voting power.

Replies - relevancy score

Users can vote on replies with a positive or negative value, marking them as either relevant or irrelevant. An irrelevant post would be hidden/minimised by default, with the ability to display it at a click of a button. The votes that replies receive, will count towards the user's total vote score (Ranking), which in turn determines the user's title.

Member titles

Users will now have a title based on the vote score of positive/negative votes he/she has received. Higher level titles will allow a user to pass out more votes on a single reply to give the reply more value (a higher relevancy rating).
