VBulletin resets patches and issues emergency patches following breach
VBulletin Solutions has reset the passwords for over 300,000 accounts on its website following a security breach, and also released emergency security patches. The company’s Internet forum software is used on tens of thousands of websites.
It’s not clear if the patches were prompted by the security breach, but the hacker who claimed to have compromised the vBulletin.com database put a zero-day vBulletin exploit — an exploit for an unpatched vulnerability — up for sale on Monday.
VBulletin Solutions did not immediately respond to an inquiry seeking more details about the patches and their relationship to the breach.
