Can't we just get someone who knows how to code to look at it and fix the code appropriately? Obviously the developer of the vb4 version has no intentions of fixing it. I'd expect something like this for a lesser known mod but c'mon iTrader is one of the top mods for vb4... You'd think the vbulletin.org staff could take some ownership and fix the issue. I know it's not their responsibility, but the version has been quarantined and no one knows why aside from that it must be a good reason... whoever deemed it needed to be quarantined knows enough about coding that they probably could have just fixed it and everyone could continue on their merry way...

Agreed, someone here knows the problem so why not just tell us what file to edit to fix the problem.

If somebody wishes to take over the modification and release it themselves, you would need to talk with the current developer and get permission to take it over.

And considering he hasn't been on the site for a month even after his mod was quarantined I doubt we'll get a response... But if someone knows how to code and is willing to do it, please do! I'd be willing to paypal someone $2 for their time, I'm sure others could chip in 1-2 bucks too.

This is causing quite the commotion on my forum, since the iTrader isn't working.

What do you expect to happen? Lynne has pointed out the options.

So because the coder has lost interest we all just have to give up on ever using iTrader again? What I expected to happen is vBulletin.org staff to go "Hey, this is a pretty popular mod, since we already know what the flaw is, we can just fix it..." Or at the very least another coder to step in and rescue the mod. I already said I'm willing to chip in money to have the mod fixed, I'm sure others would join in if someone would just help us...

If he can't or won't be contacted: yes. You can pay a coder to fix your installation, bu you can't publish it here. You could post the changes necessary in the thread, though, I guess. Or offer diff-patches. You also can contact the coder of the vB3-Version to get his o.k. to start from there to make a fresh adaption to vB4. You also could be patient. The addon has been quarantined for two weeks now. Please realize that people have lives beside offering addons for free at vb.org. The coder may be temporarily unavailable for a variety of reasons.

Addons on vb.org come for free, and they come without any guarantee whatsoever, especially not with a guarantee that fixes for issues will be provided in short time (or at all). The coder owes you nothing, and much less do the admins or mods of vb.org. You surely were aware of that fact when you downloaded and installed the addon, were you not?

We can't post the changes in the thread because we can't post in the thread at all -- that was why I created this thread.

Yes I was aware of everything that you said, but the fact that the coder has not been on the site since the beginning of February lends me to think he wasn't concerned with his modification being quarantined. I understand that no one owes us anything which is why I'm offering to pay for someone to fix it. It's just surprising when we're talking about such a popular modification like iTrader. When IbpArcade was quarantined recently, it was fixed within a few days.

Again, the frustration is that there are people who know what the problem is and how to fix it but won't.

You should not be so quick and harsh in your judgement if you lack any information. There are many causes I can think of why I would not be able to visit this site for a long time, or not anymore at all. Several of them not very pleasant or of the choosing of the coder.

I am guessing the previous version before the last update also had the same security issue?

Moving to Xenforo is not an option really.

My "harshness" is not directed at the coder. It would be nice if he could pop in and let us know he got the e-mail and plans to fix it or not, but again my main frustration is that vB.org staff found the flaw and I know they have competent coders on their team that could fix it in a handful of minutes if they wanted to.

In other modifications on this site, you will routinely see people other than the developer offering file edits to slightly modify or enhance a product. Fixing the security flaw in this product should be no different. I know we don't want to "give away" what the security risk is to allow the modification be exploited even more easily, but can't the vb.org staff that know what the flaw is just fix the bad line(s) of code and then attach the updated file so we can all move on? It's just frustrating that there are people on this site that know what the flaw is, know how to fix it, and yet just sit back saying "Well, too bad - it's the developer's problem to fix, not mine..."

I contacted vbenhancer last week and asked if he could give us a fix, he said he would look in to it.
