    I would say no. 3.7.0 was released April 2008.
    Don't forget, this was posted almost 3 years ago!
    Although, I would stay current on your versions.

    Edit: Open your forum and go to sleep.

    1) You don't have ImpEx installed.
    2) You have v 3.7.0.

        We have been getting similar attacks from some of the same IP's.

        According to another post, this is an effort to exploit an old bug. However, the fact that these just started up in the past couple days, and that several people have reported them makes me wonder.

        I suspect it is some random bot trying to attack any VB board hoping to find a version with the exploit unfixed, it is just the sudden appearance of these attacks that makes me wonder.

          I get these attempts daily on my forum, and mine is a quiet forum anyway. But at the end of the day, all the time you use the MOST up to date version of vBulletin, they are nothing more then attempts.
