On Indy's encouragement, here is Bose's explanation.

quote:
He was able to procure the image of the mod forum because the version of vB being used at the time was old. As
far as I am aware, the security hole that existed in 2.2.4
does not in 2.2.7 - meaning gaters is secure. To that end, there is nothing more that "needs to be done".

I share the website with him as we both use it as a "dumping ground" for any files we want to link to (the mod forum image for
example :S) -
Though I believe there are logs kept somewhere on the
server, it is beyond me to tell anything about the image that The Keeper doesn't already know. From what location it was uploaded, I'm assuming TW's computer? Like I've told countless others, I really would rather this never happened, and not simply because people tend to be blaming me etc.
There's really not much I can do, but if you want any help
of a specific nature, let me know.


So at least with the upgrade, we know it cant happen again, but the point is, you will have still needed to hack to get that far.
guilty as charged.

if that's the case, it was a pretty freaking big security hole.....
