vBSecurity: What is it?
vBSecurity keeps a watchful eye over your forum even when you are not there, and has the capability to alert you of any suspicious activity.

Uses

vBSecurity is the ideal product for forums that are concerned about security, or wish to be alerted when something suspicious happens.
It keeps a watchful eye on your configuration file, ensuring that it does not get modified by mods or plugins.
Another important feature is the ability to add a secondary login, unique to each administrator, that is required before accessing the AdminCP. Ideal for forums where multiple administrators may share login information, or where administrators may log in from public computers.
Add in quick settings for the most vital vBulletin Options and Usergroup password settings, vBSecurity can easily be called one of the most comprehensive security suites for your vBulletin forum.

The screenshots you posted, I have nothing like that at my site....
The only thing I see is in options "DragonByte Tech: vBSecurity - General Settings" and that is it.
Please add yourself to the Super Administrators variable in config.php

In fact, this is required to use the mod and should be a part of the readme.txt file.

I only have one issue that I have noticed so far, when I enable the config.php Variable Tampering forum shut down, it shuts the forum down and emails me even though no one is altering anything. Nothing happens when I just have the email option enabled. I had previously renamed the admin path before installing this hack, but the messages states that this is what is causing the breach.

EDIT: Ok so it's still sending me emails, but seems like it only does it when I go into the admincp.

If you renamed the admin path via the actual config.php file, as opposed to a plugin that does it, then that wouldn't occur. Are you absolutely sure you didn't use a plugin to do the rename?

Yes I'm sure I renamed the path on the config.php I have it installed on vB 4.1.9. Maybe another addon I have installed is interfering.

I wish it was possible to accurately notify you why it's triggering when it does, but sadly it is not

No doubt it's a great mod and will be a huge help to the site as we have been having issues with accounts being jacked do to a recent hacking. So for this to be the only issue I have with it, it will work well enough for me with that option disabled till I have time to look into my other addons to see if there is a conflict. I have one suggestion, is there a way you can add an option to where the notifications can be posted in a forum instead like vB has for reported posts?

If you post feature requests over at our forum they won't be lost to the mists of time when we plan out new updates

We have a custom built system that tracks feature requests that aren't implemented yet even past the natural lifespan of threads

I will do that then. I built a semi clone board and installed vBsecurity it's definitely a addon conflict because I have no issues at all will false alarms now that I have just about every plugin disabled. Once I pin point the problem, I'll post it up for everyone else.

Unfortunately this is not a helpful post, if you wish to provide constructive critisism then please do so, otherwise I see no point to posting

Hmmm.

Not seeing the NavBar tab, or the links in the quick links and community menus. I am a Super Administrator.

None exists? What are these options for it on the "DragonByte Tech: vBSecurity - General Settings" page then?
