If this really was the vbulletin.com database and file structure, that is AMAZING!!
People on Flyertalk.com better be changing some passwords.
Is that one of your sites?
It is one of IB sites. Look at the folder structure in that image.

Damn, talk about bad security. Good thing I stopped using vBulletin and switched to Xenforo.
Wouldn't that be interesting if a group of hackers took down all the Internet Brand vbulletin site. Wonder if they would then re-exam how they manage development in vbulletin.
To be honest, I kind of expected something like this to happen at one point. vBulletin 5 bad coding + the amount of people who dislike Internet Brands = a disaster just waiting to happen.
If they stuck true to form they would just blame their customers for being stupid and buying VB. Without spending thousands of dollars and loads of time to make sure that VB could not be affected. Well this is what they did with VB5.
Sounds to me like they forgot to remove their install files Isn't that what they tell everyone else why they get hacked?
krebsonsecurity has reached out to vB
Guess they should have deleted the install folder...
DaniWeb is making changes because of this: https://twitter.com/DaniWeb/status/401210490451279872
Any idea what the specifics are for "we are being PROACTIVE and changing our method of storing/checking member passwords" ?
No idea. Feel free to ask her.
Posted in public on VB.org:
I read earlier that there had been over 35,000 hacks on vb sites. I do not understand all the techy stuff but it seems that VB has some serious security problems.
But then what should we expect from a site that protects unethical staff members who support known and self confessed hackers.
BirdOPrey5 once said I did not understand the word IRONY! Perhaps I understand it better now.
I said it on another forum, I am worried it could be all the customers info.
holly ****, is it same method using install folder, or something else/another bug?
well, that escalated quickly....
really though, this is bad news for IB
What hasn't been bad news for IB recently?
vBulletin 4, vBulletin 5, XenForo lawsuit, AudiWorld, WikiTravel, fake reviews... all they need is someone to get arrested on fraud charges and they've had the lot...
