  • Is this true.. ??

    I'm looking into buying a License for Vbulletin Board...
    But have now been told that it has a Spy Code installed so vb can see what every board is up to ????? how true is this.... Scary...

    it has nothing of the sort, it does have a process where it checks the most current version

      It literally checks the version and says if its up to date or not.

      PHP being viewable source means you can view it yourself and check.

        It's "scary" because it's not true.

            So how's that Crest been working out for you, Kathy? Better than the Colgate you were using last week?

                  Older versions used to have the "call home" feature which would consist of downloading a blank image from the vB servers.

                  It seems that option has been replaced with the "version checker", which in my opinion is awful, and is something I have disabled on my boards. When the vB servers become sluggish, which is quite often, you can't access your admin section which can be quite frustrating. :\

                      Sure do. Warez circlez thrive on rumours.

                        The version checker is still the call home:

                          first let me say No I don't have an Illegal Copy.... I'm using phpBB2 at the moment if thats any of your business.....

                          But yes your right...... if you really would like to know i don't like the idea that they can track anything they like in the forums... ( if this is what they can do ) if I'm paying to Lease or even buy a License then surely that means the forums should have privacy from any-1 at all unless they are a member of the forums.....

                          If you Leased an house of some-1 and was paying them money to use that property you would not expect them to have camera's hidden all over the house watching every thing you do......
                          so lets say i sell you my house.. but i put camera's in every room just to keep an eye on you to make sure you don't abuse my house....

                          now to me this is the same sort of thing...

                          and b4 any-1 at all says this.. ( looks to me like he will be using it for the wrong reasons ) no i wont.. i just don't like the idea of being spy-ed on...

                              Helpful too if you have extra water glasses nearby.
