  • remove some of Powered by vBulletin™ Version x.x.x

    It would be nice to have the option to remove part of the Powered by vBulletin™ Version 4.0.0 Beta 1I don't want to remove it all just Version 4.x.x

    The reason why is if there are any exploits discovered a hacker could just search for "Powered by vBulletin™ Version 4.0.0" or what ever version number they want to find and start causing problems, or if not remove all of it at least the last 2 numbers.

    My forum has been hacked before and they found it in this way it wasn't a problem with vbulletin but a 3rd party plugin, but it could happen.

    I know I can pay to remove the branding but that's not what I'm asking, I'm not bothered about having the powered by at the bottom just the version number.

    Even if you remove the version number in the footer, you can still view it in the source code

      I'm pretty sure you can already remove the version number even on the current version.

          Yes, but ONLY in the footer
