Hi all,

A couple of days ago, the server of my host was hacked. The host took the
server down en restored backups. Afterwards everything seemed fine, but then
I noticed certain content could not be storen in wiki pages. After pasting
certain data in a page and clicking on store, wiki would come back and ask
if I would like to create a new page. If I hovered over the url for the new
page I would see 403.shtml or sometimes 500.shtml. I am not able to store
the page.

PHP Safe mode is off by the way...

I would appreciate any tips towards a solution!

Here's an easy scenario to recreate the bug, go to
http://wiki.experiencecompany.nl/Test3 and past the text below, then click
on store:
