Security Update for vBulletin 4

A security issue has been reported to us that affects vBulletin 4. We have released security patches for vBulletin 4.2.2 & 4.2.3 to account for this vulnerability. The issue could potentially allow attackers to perform SQL Injection attacks via the included Forumrunner add-on. It is recommended that all users update as soon as possible. If you're using a version of vBulletin 4 older than 4.2.2, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible. Please note that you need to update regardless of whether you have Forumrunner enabled.

You can download the patch for your version here: http://members.vbulletin.com/patches.php

To install the patch, download the appropriate files for your version of vBulletin 4 then upload all files found within the zip file. Make sure to overwrite the existing files on your server.

If you're using a version prior to 4.2.2, then you should follow standard upgrade procedures.

Patches available:

vBulletin 4.2.2 Patch Level 5
vBulletin 4.2.3 Patch Level 1

vBulletin 4.2.4 Beta 2 has been released and includes the fix.

vBulletin 3.6 & 3.7 Modifications

Way back in 2014, we archived the vB 3.5 forums.

Another two years have passed and the time has come to move the 3.6 & 3.7 forums into the archive.
Few sites now run vBulletin 3.6 or 3.7 (The last version of 3.7 was released over 6 years ago, and 3.6 almost 8 years ago).

Posting (releases) in these forums has been disabled for a number of years now.

This move will happen sometime in the next few weeks (probably in July).
Unlike previous archived versions, we will continue to allow downloads for 3.6 & 3.7.

vBulletin 5.2.2 Connect is now available for download

We're pleased to announce the release of vBulletin 5.2.2 Connect. Altogether over 150 issues have been resolved in vBulletin 5.2.2. This is a maintenance release with numerous bug fixes and enhancements. Altogether 170 issues were resolved in this release.
  • Minimum PHP Version: 5.4.0
  • Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5
  • Recommended PHP Version: 5.6.0 or higher
  • Recommended MySQL Version: 5.6.0 or higher

Email Language
An issue where the email can be sent in the master language (English) or the language of the content creator has been resolved. This will allow you to customize your emails to fit your community within the Phrase Manager of the AdminCP. Users should now receive emails in their selected language or the language set as the site default depending on their personal settings.

ckEditor Update
Significant work has been made to update ckEditor in the system to the latest series. Ckeditor is available in iOS and desktop web browsers at this time.

Editor Autogrow
We use functionality to autogrow the editor as you type. Currently this can cause the editor's toolbar to scroll off the screen. We have made changes to the functionality to keep the toolbar on the screen as much as possible. As you type, the editor will grow to the bottom of the screen and stop. If you scroll down, it will grow until it fills the screen. If you resize the screen, the editor will readjust to fit. If you would like an editor area larger than your screen, you can adjust the size manually but clicking on the triangle in the lower right corner and dragging it.

Button Updates
As part of our ongoing Responsive work, we have refactored the display of buttons throughout the vBulletin system. The CSS has been converted to the BEM style of CSS used elsewhere in vBulletin. In addition to this, backgrounds of the buttons now use CSS Gradients for better control over colors. Button display should be consistent throughout the software now. The primary action button will always display as the right most button and have the appropriated highlighted background. In addition to this buttons are now easier to use on mobile devices where necessary they now appear larger and the same consistency is applied. On small screen devices like phones, the primary action button should be the top button in the display.

Database Cleanup
If you upgraded from an older version of vBulletin, there are a number of tables that are considered deprecated and are no longer used in vBulletin 5 Connect. These tables may contain a considerable amount of data and increase the size of your database storage. In order to streamline this, we are working to remove these unused tables. The tables removed in this version are:
  • post
  • posthash
  • postlog
  • postparsed
  • postrelease
  • thread
  • threadrate
  • threadread
  • threadredirect
  • threadviews
  • skimlinks

Once these tables are deleted, the information will be gone forever. We suggest you make a backup of them if you feel you might need the data in the future for some other application.

ImageMagick Security Issue

Earlier this week, various exploits were found in ImageMagick that would allow the use of image metadata to exploit sites. It is recommended that you update your ImageMagick installation if you use it on your server. You should also update your ImageMagick policies to prevent these types of exploits in the future. If you are on shared hosting, you should contact your hosting provider to make sure they have updated their servers.

Significant work has been made to update ckEditor in the system to the latest series. Within this work, it is currently available to iOS devices.
