    Shell exploits can't get out of the users permissions though unless someone is stupid enough to give their forum account root privileges... nobody would be that incompetent :p

    Acorn moved away from vbulletin a while ago, It won't be affected.

    If you're reading this nominet it's a 5 minute fix yet you're still down. I'm available for hire if you can't find a cyber-tech company (I mean it's not as if you throw all *our* money at any is it?) :p

    Yeah but it's so tricky to apply patches and takes a lot of time... they really need to raise prices to be able to afford someone.
