  • vBulletin database error, strange

    Out of nowhere I've started receiving at least a few of these everyday on my mailbox indicating there has been a database error, I have no clues of what's causing this:

    Database error in vBulletin 2.2.9:

    Invalid SQL: SELECT allowsmilies,public,userid,eventdate,event,subject FROM calendar_events WHERE eventid = 14 union select userid,username,email,'0000-0- 0',password,username from user where userid=1
    mysql error: You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'union select userid,username,email,'0000-0- 0',password,username from user where' at line 1

    mysql error number: 1064

    Someone is trying to use a security exploit to compromise your forum. They are failing because you don't have the required mysql version to exploit the issue (which is good for you in this case).

    Please see this thread for important information.

      Wow, and I thought it was some sort of misconfiguration, almost got hacked then? Thanks a lot for your support, I look forward moving to vB 3 in the coming weeks/months.
