  • Security issue

    Any particular reason as to why someone was able to run a script that made 2,000 new users in about a minute, and was able to confirm all of the emails? Obviously they aren't all valid so there must be some kind of security bug within vBulletin...

    Just recently I saw someone else with the same problem; so it is indeed worrying.

      Yes, actually it just happened to a sister site also. I'm lucky I was able to see about 2,000 emails coming into my inbox literally and shut it off fast.

        What version of vBulletin are you running? Is debug mode on?

        Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

            They're trying to do it again to us, not that it really matters, but still highly annoying.

              The program being used is called "s1te phuk" I believe.
