Well, in this case it appears the hacker only wanted to prove that there
was a vulnerability, in order to force vbulleting to update their
software fast, no intention to use the obtained data.

Or so he claims.

If he were, he'd have told vBulletin of the exploit. The exploit is
described as a "private exploit," which to me says he's not disclosed it.
