  • vb 4.2.1 safe to install? Hundreds of forums hacked!

    Im about to switch from our 3.6 to latest vb 4.2.1 and read the last 2 days vb 4.2 has been hacked on hundreds of forums.

    Im not worried about the "remember to completely delete the install folder after upgrade" however as per thread
    many forum owners had that install folder already deleted and still got hacked so what is vbulletin doing to assure we can upgrade and run vb4 safely?

    Im asking as i just paid for vb4 but don't want to switch to vb4 from vb3 just to find vb4 was not done right security wise.

    Yes, perfectly, as long as you delete your install folder after you're done upgrading.

    Anyone who is getting acked, after removing their install folder, was likely already exploited.
