Default New credentials for everyone?

Ran across this article: http://www.scmagazine.com/user-data-...rticle/451640/
With Vbulletin hacked, are we all going to have to change credentials, and when?

I'll look into this, thanks for sharing VTphotog.

Saw on another source that this only affects v.5 and up, but not sure of that.
Thanks for the quick response.

The users that needed to change passwords were users at vbulletin.com (not here at steves-digicams.com, as we're just using vbulletin softwre, and would not have been part of any alleged attack on their forums).

See this alert to vbulletin.com forum users here:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...password-reset

Yes, the patch issued is for 5.1.4 through 5.1.9 versions of vBulletin. See this page for info:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...-through-5-1-9

We're running an older 3.8.4 patch level 2 release.

The recent vBulletin leak will not affect users of Internet Brands sites, only users of vBulletin in particular. No need to worry!
