Not in the updated version. Most probably developer will need to review the
authetication and validation processes to move it away.

No, the page says: «Another important claim by the hacker that vBulletin
5.0.5 latest version is also vulnerable to his zero-day exploit and
there is no patch yet available to fix it.»

That's right. Nor the last update or upgrade are able to fix it. The core flaw
seems to be on vBulletin itself.

Since that point of view. There is a bad path to validate admin user or weak
path to handle authentication. So software will need better control points to
work among layers before grant access.
