  • vBulletin 5 SECURITY ?

    EDIT: I didn't realize vB5 has actually been released.. So this should be meant for, before vB5 actually get's popular..(successor of vB4)
    Is vBulletin5 going to be audited, BEFORE it is released?!

    In this topic here: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...light=whitehat
    'm0rgulvale' brings up an excellent argument surrounding the security of vBulletin.


    So, is vBulletin going to be audited by professionals?
    Maybe you could set up some sort of 100% open forum, 'honey-pot'(wrong word to use, but I can't think of the correct term - so when something is found, it is automatically reported to you) for ethical, and whitehat hackers like myself to test, and look for vulnerabilities.


    I personally have found two 0day's in vanilla vBulletin, and that was when I was a complete amateur!! But I'm not here to brag of what I've done...


    I think it should be audited by pros. I'm sure there are many white-hat hackers out there that are willing to do these audits for FREE, just to get a name for themselves...

    It is ALWAYS better to catch the bugs before they are abused...

    I've added a poll that would be great if you could vote aswell.

    Poll: The further development of vB5 Which way would you prefer personally?
    by TLMD
    It won't be too long until vB 5.1.0 is being released. No, there is no official release date available, but I am pretty sure it won't take six more months or something. Anyways, the release of vB 5.1.0...

    by MistyMeanor
    So I noticed the new version is out. I just got new forum license set up with a vB4 about a month ago. Since I have added mods to it and just kind of gotten all set up the way I want it for the most part...

    I really don't know what everyone's complaining about. Sorry this forum isn't hack able yet, not many add ons nor themes. Sucks, don't it? Everyone who bought this software knew what they were getting...
