    vBulletin password hack fuels fears of serious Internet-wide 0-day attacks

    Developers of the vBulletin software package for website forums released a security patch Monday night, just hours after reports surfaced that a hack on the developers' site leaked password data and other sensitive information belonging to almost 480,000 subscribers.

    vBulletin officials have put in place a mandatory password reset for all users after discovering it was subjected to a hack attack. They went on to warn that the attacker "may have accessed customer IDs and encrypted passwords on our system." A separate post on the vBulletin site makes reference to a security patch for versions 5.1.4 through 5.1.9 of the vBulletin Connect software package.

    Heidi said thanks for the heads up... But it would only affect her password at vBulletin.COM and also that we're still on version 4.2.2 .
