  • vBulletin Hacked Accounts

    I recently found out that someone hacked accounts from members on my site. I also found out that all these accounts were registered on another, small site. ( so it is very unlikely a coincidence ) The hacker was admin on the other site for some time, before being banned. How could he have stolen passwords on the other site? I have admincp info to the other site, but i don't know what to look for.

    vBulletin passwords are hashed and salted. So unless he hacked the vBulletin code to store passwords in plain text somewhere it's pretty unlikely he got those passwords from another vBulletin site.
    Planning to continue using VB 3.8 post EOL? Then join the VB 3.8 Forever group and vB3Forever.org!
