vBulletin vandals and the wisdom of randomly generated passwords
Just finished fixing my VB site after some kid aparently hacked into the ftp server and posted broken scripts touting the virtues of natural male enhancements into every directory. At first I thought it was a security flaw in VB itself, but then i noticed files in the secure directories too. Also, as soon as I would fix the files, they woudl be broken again.
