      What do you mean? It shouldn't be letting everybody in...

        LOL - I know... what a huge security hole I just found.. All I know is I go to the forum/mod and it lets anyone in! I never touched any setting that would cause it not to ask for a password. Admin CP is passworded, but mod isn't, how do I lock it?

          The Admin CP makes you login, even if you're logged in. The Mod CP does not. Log out, then try again...

            haha, I feel like an idiot... I didn't know the mod cp holds cookies.. That was it, I was already logged into the site so it let me in... I thought it's suppose to ask for a password everytime like admin cp.

            Also.. are both cp safe? or should I add .htaccess as well? How safe is it like it is?

              Both CP's are safe, but you may want to .htaccess them for additional security

                Would it be possible to configure the Mod CP to behave the same way as the Admin CP ? (I mean I know it would be, but is that permitted in the license agreement ?)

                  Yes, you are allowed to edit the source code of vBulletin. However, by doing so, since you 'hacked' the files, we are not obligated to still offer support after you do this.
