      Show us your UBB and your Vbulletin, and then we can talk about the two products, ok?
      It is easy to say one board is better than another one without owning them.

        Fquist,
        I did not mean that vBulletin should not includes any UBB hacks, it should inlcude only the good and useful ones, also, I said that because some of vBulletin users said that UBB 6.0 has got all the features of vBulletin 1.0 so we are equal, clone=clone
        About the security, That happened because you did not followed the standard security process. For example, you've to move your member's dirctory outside the web-tree, chmod 0777 .. etc.
        This happens with all flat-files based systems not just UBB.
        Of course there is only 2 top-secured bulletin board systems : Phorum and WWWThreads .
        On the whole , Perl based scripts are more stable and secure than new PHP scripts.

        Alwaysmefirst,
        I do own a UBB , I've have some experience with vBulletin but not so much.

          Actually, Phorum had an exploit posted on BugTraq that let you run arbitrary commands.

          Plus saying that Perl is inherently more secure than PHP is sooo misleading. Back that up and then I'll believe you.

            wrong. ubb 6.0 still comes no-where near close to the amount of features vb 2.0 has. templates and usergroups for example.


            "About the security, That happened because you did not followed the standard security process. For example, you've to move your member's dirctory outside the web-tree, chmod 0777 .. etc.

            Don't tell us how to do it, our two lead admins are linux techies. But we still got hacked.

            "Of course there is only 2 top-secured bulletin board systems : Phorum and WWWThreads .

            vBulletin is pretty secure. And it's **** of a bull that perl would be more secure as php.
            They are both languages.. they have their pros and their cons but none of the two is more secure then the other..
