    This is the exact reason why security updates shouldn't require you to renew your members access.

    Paying to get security fixes, which are a dev slipup, is bordering extortion.
    I would agree with that logic, but it don't seem to apply here. I've seen all the recent security patches as free downloads IIRC.

      The security fix that he needs are listed in the announcement forum free for any customer.

      However, this particular security vulnerability was fixed with the release of vBulletin 2.3.4 which occured on January 7th, 2004, before the original poster's upgrade privileges ran out.

        Mabey it would be a good idea to have some sort of patch center in the members area for us that we still have access to even if we don't renew. At least then everything would be in one place instead of spread into multiple threads on the forum.

          Actually, it ran out 13th Sep 2003. I have two licenses, with two members area usernames/passwords (as I don't actually own one of the licenses - but I run the site, install updates etc). The licenses that expired on the 7th was the one for http://www.ausforum.com/ which is running the latest version of vBulletin available to it at the time of license expiry.

              The patch should have been released when the security hole was announced, not six months after.

              Not only for non-renewed members, but also for members who don't wish to upgrade.

                Members who don't wish to upgrade can compare the files to figure out what the patch is.

                    Why don't you read the thread before you take it upon yourself to chastise something that didn't happen?

                    The patch for this vulnerability was released on January 7th, 2004 at 8:59 a.m. (pacific time).
