Don't hate forums. Hate the hackers who think this is a fun thing to
do, especially to an open source project.

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.

The article, which may not be accurate, says OpenSuse was not running
the most current version of vBulletin. It might be fixed already in
later versions.

The exploit was in the vbseo addon, which was developed by a now defunct
company and is no longer patched.

So I'm told.
