I'm pretty into different forum software, and vBulletin used to be "the standard" a few years back. It's slowly decreased in the past few years with the latest release of their vBulletin 5, which was buggy and slow. XenForo is now "the standard".

Anyway, I went to vBulletin's forum today and noticed that it had been hacked (more or less):
direct


You can check it out yourself by going to: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum (the main vBulletin site is still up). I'm sure this makes more people want to use their product now! It's a pretty big deal considering that vBulletin was a pretty serious business. Anyway, just wanted to share with you guys.

I didn't see that on the site...
It was only down for a while. It's a major company, so it isn't expected for it to be like that for a long time, but the fact that it even was like that poses security questions; how vulnerable the software is.

Huh, I think I missed this thread.


Seriously why can't kids play with other stuff instead of things like this.
