I haven't liked vBulletin for some time now and mostly put that forum software behind me except for the occasional jab about how bad their software is. I came across this interesting update from PC Gamer the other day... with a part that I emphasized: http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/07/26/why-forums-and-comments-are-still-offline/ http://mos.futurenet.com/forum/ I don't visit PC Gamer's website, so I'm not certain what version of vB they were using, but this is pretty huge. The took all of their entire network's vBulletin powered forums offline because it was exploited. Well PC Gamer, I suggest you switch to Invision Power. vBulletin has really gone downhill and I'm glad we stopped using their software when we did.
I received this email today: After logging into vbulletin's site, I changed my password and checked out the client forums. vBulletin's software was compromised, again. Earlier this year, PCGamers forum was hacked and then earlier in July, Ubuntu forums was hacked. And just the other day vbulletin.com, vbulletin.org and MacRumors were all hacked. All of the sites were running vbulletin software.

If vb3 is now vulnerable, then all the numerous sites still using it are at risk. Anyone that has used the same password on all sites, should not use any password they have previously used on any vBulletin site. The Ubuntu and MacRumors sites were hacked because a moderator account was broken into. The vBulletin.com and vBulletin.org sites have not stated how they were hacked into, nor do they have a fix for this exploit because it is "being looked into."
Sledgstone posted a article in GamesCall of Duty: Ghosts current-gen versions hacked before launch This is why a host based system is pointless, its too easy for a host system to get an advantage. I wouldn't play this on PS3 or Xbox 360 now. Also, this video emphasizes that Ghosts is not powered by a new game engine. If the hack was based off a Modern Warfare 2 hack, then parts of the game code is the same as a game from 2009. Everyone is basically buying the exact same game every year with new maps.
