XF 1.5 Google 403 warning

#1
image.jpeg image.jpeg The almighty Google sent me an email advising me to fix an issue. Seems like their crawler is getting a 403 while trying to index some images. Here are some screen shots. What can I do?

Thanks

I posted before researching. I understand that I have to allow guests to have ability to view the images for these errors not to show up. I'll check on that.

After investigation, they are image files from a forum I deleted. Do I have to do anything after I delete a forum to clean up the back end??

If you've deleted a forum (and didn't move its content elsewhere) google will eventually stop complaining about this without action on your part.
