  • nulled version

    If I purchase a vbulletin can I use a nulled version?

    I don't plan on doing this but I'm just asking as a "what if".

    That makes zero sense. Why would you want to use a nulled version after you have bought it?

    And the answer to your question is no. You would need to download and overwrite the files with the bought version. Not to say it wouldn't possibly cause errors either. Of course the only reason I can see for this question is if you are already using a nulled version or know someone that is.

    Using nulled software is a big gamble. Just because it says 'null', doesn't mean there isn't coding in it that doesn't give a backdoor to the site its being used on, to the people that nulled it in the first place. Not only is using nulled software a huge legal risk, it's a huge security risk as well.

        You actually risk losing your license should it be discovered you are using a nulled version.

            What if say the nulification was just the removalof the version checker in the admin cp so it loaded quicker? especially if vbulletin.com was down

              That's not a nullification. That's just removing the call home.

                Adding to Manager Josh's comment, as long as you got a legit license. Some license holders will do that when they install a vB board on a intranet since the call-home thingy may get intercepted by the intranet's firewall.

                  From what i understand there is actually no problem with running a nullified version, yes it does seem rediculous but IIRC as long as you have a valid license and your domain is listed on the vb customer area thingo then I personally cant see why vb would have a problem

                  Not saying i would do it, and I haven't come across it in a while, but i can remember talking to the piratereports guy a while back and I think thats what he said - or maybe I misunderstood him.

                    Technically you could run a nulled version if you have a license for it and have set the URL correctly in your members area.
                    Be advised though, that you won't receive vBulletin support if you aren't using the original files, some hosts check for nulled versions, and nulled versions are known to have security holes.

                    So I'd say the advantages of using the original files are rather big.

                        If you have a licence, and hence the proper files, why would you want to run a "nulled" version, it makes no sense at all.

                            This is quite old...

                            Some people chose to stay with their nulled files because they're hacked to bits and they don't want to redo that.
                            It seems I was mistaken though. Please only use the original files with each license.
