Question 4.2.2 Patch

Is there a list of changed files for 4.2.2 PL2? I already have 4.2.2 PL1, and don't want to overwrite every single file, since we do have some code edits.

Is there a way for us to simply disable the mobile API, since we don't use it?

Thanks!

Diff the files, or re-apply your code edits. Its not that much effort.

Right.
In addition you should write down code changes, i. e. in a mod file, so you can re-create them after updates.

That might be a good list, but as it is not from a vB official, I would not count on it completely.

It is not acceptable that there's no separate patch for this, but instead, it has been merged in a complete new version. Not everyone can just upgrade their vBulletin installation due to customization.

That would be something you should bring up on vB.com, as no one here has any control over such things, and no one who is a decision maker in vBulletin reads this site.

Unless you enabled it, its disabled by default.

Its perfectly acceptable.

Were I not on holiday, id post a list of changed files, but as it happens, I am.
The list linked to above seems reasonable from what I remember.

You are correct. If you've invested a lot of time modifying your forum then upgrades are almost like dismantling and reassembling your entire site.

I would suggest avoiding any upgrades if you can.

And how would you suggest such people protect themselves from this exploit?

Not if you were smart about it. Using tools like Template Modification System (TMS), creating good documentation along the way. Upgrading could be a real pain during the early vB4 releases, I agree - but you really should not run those anyway, bugwise. But if you have file edits that make overwriting the original files of the same version a real pain, then you're most likely doing it wrong. Given the plugin system there is not much need for file edits, but if you do them, keep them properly documented and use diff tools.
I would suggest avoiding any upgrades if you can.
Which is a stupid suggestion, really.
