    But just in case, I see we are already running 3.0.6 (huzzah for Nulltone).
    I would never question the good intentions of our loved members, but there's always a bunch of morons trying to screw things up. (see Tard hall or Dev/Null for more info)

    Wow, someone has topped me in sarcasm. Is it a sign of the apocalypse?

    Personally, I like phpBB because of it;s easy-to-use admin CP. I just got aggrivated when I was trying to setup my forum with vBulletin, so I wiped everything and started fresh with phpBB. And honestly, I do not really care if someone roots my server box, just another intersting thing to put on the news section. Screenshots of a defaced page are always nice traffic.

    Just like I said folks,

    Here straight form the vBulletin homepage.

    "vBulletin 3.0.6 and 2.3.6 Realeased!

    vBulletin 3.0.6 and 2.3.6 are security and bug fix releases. They fix a recently discovered XSS issue regarding BB code parsing.

    All versions of vBulletin prior to 3.0.6 and 2.3.6 are vulnerable. The only workaround is to disable BB code parsing in signatures and all forums where untrusted users can post.

    We strongly urge all customers to upgrade or patch their installations ASAP."

    I've never really messed with vBulletin, besides helping a friend set it up once. I've always been a phpBB guy myself. I like the way it looks by default, it's easier to skin for me, and it does everything I've always needed it to do. Plus, the majority of the forums I've ever been to were built on it.

    No, actually the first update was addressing the original vulnarabilites and the second was because they didn't FULLY update their software. Only the original update was PHP's fault, and they released a fix (4.3.10 or 5.0.3) within a day.

    started a topic Annoying vBulletin

    Annoying vBulletin

    I also run a vBulletin forum at my website, Which is in my opinion the best forum script out there, I just updated it from 3.0.0 to 3.0.3 like a month ago, last week they came up with this new 3.0.4 version, I updated. And NOW they just released a new 3.0.5 requiring a critical update for the users with previous versions. PHP is just a bunch of security holes. (Like everything?)
Working...
