Many sister forums are going offline or being hacked today. This is because they use vBulletin software which has a zero day vulnerability that was disclosed two days ago.

vBulletin (which use to be a respected organisation before it was taken over by the moneymen) has not acknowledged, fixed or advised the poor forum administrators who are all now between a rock and a hard place. My heart goes out to them.

If you use a vBulletin forum that is still operating please urgently advise their Admin of the issue.

EDIT: local forums are not affected. STF uses phpBB, SExx.life use Discourse and SE23.COM uses MyBB.
