vBSecurity: What is it?
vBSecurity keeps a watchful eye over your forum even when you are not there, and has the capability to alert you of any suspicious activity.


vBSecurity is the ideal product for forums that are concerned about security, or wish to be alerted when something suspicious happens.
It keeps a watchful eye on your configuration file, ensuring that it does not get modified by mods or plugins.
Another important feature is the ability to add a secondary login, unique to each administrator, that is required before accessing the AdminCP. Ideal for forums where multiple administrators may share login information, or where administrators may log in from public computers.
Add in quick settings for the most vital vBulletin Options and Usergroup password settings, vBSecurity can easily be called one of the most comprehensive security suites for your vBulletin forum.

For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

We appreciate the support!

Installed this as per the instructions given and it immediately killed my site.

When going into the settings in admincp, I got alot of depreciated errors showing at the top.

Main problem was the site would not load. All that would show was this error message:

Fatal error: Class 'VBSECURITY' not found in /var/www/vhosts/watchgeeks.net/httpdocs/dbtech/vbsecurity/hooks/global_complete.php on line 65

I turned the mod off and still could not load the site. The site would not load until fully uninstalling the mod.

I like what this mod is supposed to do...but it sure isn't working for me.
