vBulletin 3.6.4

The discovery of a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) issue in the administrators control panel has necessitated the preventative release of vBulletin 3.6.4 Due to several mitigating factors, this issue is hard to exploit and careful browsing by the admins can prevent it entirely. Nonetheless, we strongly recommend that all of our customers upgrade or apply the patch as soon as possible.

I'm still waiting for a reply from Kyle from an IM sometime within the last week or so.

When he does it there will be some sweet features added very quickly, on top of the ones that are already in the upgrade. But hey, I ought not get my hopes up.

Post count isn't a factor at all. If you think you have something to offer that we don't already have, drop me a line. I'm always open to new ideas.
