  3. I have imposed a new requirement today limiting who can start and receive private conversations. This is in an effort to thwart scammers who have a zero post count but private message others offering to sell their licenses. The restriction is not strict, a user must post at least one (1) post in the forum before being allowed to start and/or receive private conversations. Read Forum Post

    A potential security issue has been discovered by the vBulletin team. This issue could allow private vBulletin options to be accessible to an attacker. To fix this issue, we have created a new security patch. During the process of fixing the issue, it was determined that several options were improperly marked as private. These have been made public for use in templates and elsewhere. It is recommended that all customers install this patch as soon as possible.

    You can download the patch for your version here:

    To install the patch:
    1) Download the appropriate files for your version of vBulletin 5
    2) Upload all files found within the zip file. Make sure to overwrite the existing files on your server.
    3) Run /core/install/upgrade.php to re-import the default settings files.

    This should not affect your modified settings.

    If you're using version 5.1.7 or before, then you should upgrade to vBulletin 5.2.0 following standard upgrade procedures.

    vBulletin Cloud sites have already had this fix applied.

    5.2.0 Patch Level 2
    5.1.10 Patch Level 1
    5.1.9 Patch Level 4
