    Can u give me a suggestion on which one to choose? phpbb or mybb for creating forums. In many of the forums that i have seen, it is written that phpbb is more vulnerable to attacks compared to mybb. So, give me ur experiences on this.
    I searched in net and got an useful link.
    http://www.forummatrix.org/compare/MyBB+phpBB
    But this link explains all the feature related things. But i need it in security aspects.

    I also would go for PHPBB rather than MyBB. I personally never liked MyBB. Also, SMF is also a good forum script. PHPBB has got greater community than MyBB and you will be having better support for PHPBB. It has also got a lot of mods to use. But, regarding the features, MyBB has more advanced features.

    As Deadly Ghos7 said, you will get a better support for PHPBB when compared to MyBB.

    Of course, the increase in popularity of a software leads to increased security leaks in that software, as more crackers start cracking into it :)

    PhpBB is more widely used ,that's true. But I don't think this can be used to judge which is better.For me ,they are all the same.

    phpBB is better because it has more sites and here is great security as compared to MyBB. I do agree with the second option as smf.
