    Default vBulletin 0-Day Exploit Exposes User Info

    This Arstechnica article indicates that there may be a newly-discovered zero-day vulnerability in vBulletin v4 and v5 which allows an attacker to fully expose account IDs, password hashes and possibly the entire database.

    Normally, this would not concern me beyond the low probability of being e-mail spammed. However, since game and forum accounts are linked, the possibility of certain types of user information being exposed is unsettling.

    Is Turbine aware of this and what steps, if any, have been taken to avoid user data being compromised?
    The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)

    Considering some of the scumbags who frequent these boards thats actually mildly worrisome.

    Two words:

    Offer Wall.

    Remember that, and how that turned out? Turbine is probably fully aware of this issue and they just don't care. Again, just like with the Offer Wall.
    If your "Known Issues" list needs a freaking scroll bar, then one of you needs to go.
