  • question about vBulletin, PM, Admin.....

    on another message board i sent a pm to someone with a link to a webpage.

    this morning i checked the Referrers for the website through and it listed two referrers:

    one came from i checked the ip and i came from the person i sent the pm to.

    but there was another referrer that came from it looks like it came from admin's CP, and it had a different IP.

    so my question is can an admin of a vB forum read other member's PMs or am i being paranoid?

    There is a hack that lets them read it from the admin panel.. or they can view the messages in phpmyadmin if they dont have the hack installed. .

      The administrator(s) of a vBulletin can look at anything that the end-user submits to the site, including PMs, due to the nature of MySQL and how data is stored.
