I've been thrown a brochure for Frogteacher.
Iv'e read the other posts concerning the security issues that have arisen but was wondering if anyone here has it installed or looked at it in more depth.

Yep ... I had quite a long chat with one of the MDs and more recently with another one ...
The security issues is ... if you don't set it up properly, according to the guidelines given ... then people can access pages with 'public' permissions that are only hidden out of the way due to you not having permissions to see the menu.
The security problem was highlighted because, allegedly (court case still to happen), a former students of a school repeatedly tried different accounts and passwords to get in ... managed to get a working account ... and then posted one of the 'public' permission pages that he could view via a staff account.
FrogTrade have changed the defaut settings on most installations now and have made sure that existing customers are aware of what they *should* do ...
