You will want to check your conf_global.php file and remove every mention of IPB_Firewall. This not a product we make and is evidence your hosting was compromised quite some time ago. 

OK.  Removing all instances of that.  This doesn't appear to be a hosting compromise.  All these subroutines are commented with "Invision Power Board" comments and versions that are VERY old.  I believe this is before it was rebranded Invision Community, and somehow the code survived all the upgrades.

The person who wrote that simply added those comments to make it look real. That is a known compromise

Hi. I'm in an in-between sticky situation where I waited too long to upgrade to 4.7.3 while still on php 7.4. 

My host isn't going to update to php 8 until the end of the year. 

Is there any chance to download a copy of 4.7.3 so that my community doesn't break when it goes to 8? 

Or am I stuck having to install 4.7.4 at the same time as they do 8?

Thank you!

IPS does not make old versions of the software available.  If you did not download it before 4.7.4 was available, you would need to wait until your host installs PHP8.  Also...  many hosting providers enable the ability to run multiple versions of PHP.  Check with them to see if they can allow you to choose which version of PHP you run on your site.  Once they install PHP8, you'll then be able to switch to it at your convenience.
