    Is this website safe from SQL injections?

    Does SSL prevent SQL injections?

    Anyway GBAtemp does have SSL -- stick a https:// at the start of it if you want to see it. It does not do it by default/auto redirect to SSL for complex reasons, mostly that many users come from countries that dislike ssl.

    Who knows?
    You've already figured that SSL doesn't prevent SQL injection so I'll refrain from mentioning that. (also, high five, you did the google)

    As for your question, there's this little phenomenon that applies to any computer application, OS, hardware, etc.: there will always be bugs/exploits/vulnerabilities (note: don't take it too literally). So the technical answer is no, but the practical answer is yes. XenForo tries their best to prevent (and fix) issues in their forum software, and they also limit what pages can do to what they need to do so if a vulnerability is found it isn't as bad as it could be.

    tl;dr: yes.
