    I wish it were a joke, it brought my Vbulletin site down 2 days ago.. I was running a 3.x board but tonight am upgrading to 4.12. I knew it was an injection sql thing.. I traced it back to a Russian Botnet. I t also screwed with my Wordpress front end as well and I had to re-install.

    This is no joke.

    One night the site was running fine. (3 days ago) then down it went. We had seen an increase of Spammers trying to get in. I guess one of them did.

    Oh well it's forcing me to upgrade, but also have to delete all posts as well as users from the last 2 weeks.

    Has anyone been affected by this attack?

    Are vBulletin sites likely to be targetted?
