vBulletin 3.8.4 PL1 / 3.7.6 PL1 / 3.6.12 PL2

An XSS flaw within the user profile page has recently been discovered. This could allow an attacker to carry out an action as a user or obtain access to a user's account. To resolve this issue, it has been necessary to release a patch level version of the active versions of vBulletin.

The upgrade process is the same as previous patch level releases - simply download the patch from the Members Area (http://members.vbulletin.com/patches.php), extract the files and upload to your webserver, overwriting the existing files. There is no upgrade script required.

As with all security-based releases, we recommend that all customers upgrade as soon as possible in order to prevent any potential damage resulting from the flaw being exploited.


Upgrading from 3.8.4, 3.7.6 or 3.6.12

If you are already running the latest version of the 3.6, 3.7 or 3.8 branch, the process you will be required to follow to make your board immune to this flaw is very simple.

There is no need to run an upgrade script if you are already running the latest version.

Visit the Patches section of the vBulletin Members' Area (http://members.vbulletin.com/patches.php) and download the patch for the version you are using, then extract the files from the archive you downloaded, then upload the files to your board via FTP etc., overwriting the existing files. This will update your version to the PL1 release.


Upgrading from an earlier version

If you are not already running the latest version of 3.6, 3.7 or 3.8, you should download the latest version from the Members' Area (http://members.vbulletin.com/) and perform an upgrade as normal.

Full instructions for upgrading vBulletin are available here. (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/../docs/html/upgrade)


Download vBulletin 3.8.4 PL1 / 3.7.6 PL1 / 3.6.12 PL2

As usual, the version released today is available for all customers with valid, active licenses to download from the vBulletin Members' Area.

any 3.8 users must now upgrade to vB3.8.4 pl1 if you want to secure your board. if you're not using vB3.8.4, download the entire vB from the members area, run the upgrade script, dont just upload the 3 files.
