Download a fresh copy of the vBulletin 3.x version from the Members Area, that matches your vBulletin License then upload those files (edit config.php to copy the database and other details from the old config, to the new config before uploading). *Run a backup of the filesystem and database before attempting any of this (or copy the entire /forum/ or /public_html/ folder if you have enough disk space) in case you need to revert for some reason.
I'm sure the spammer will appreciate the informative post when they return to edit their post and add links.
