Live Demo: ACP News: Potential vBulletin Exploit (vBulletin 4.1+, vBulletin 5+)

vBulletin pushes important news items to your Admin CP News Section. Some important items that get pushed are new versions of the software, and more importantly, notice of exploits and security patches. If you don't check your Admin CP regularly it could be days, even weeks before you see important notices. This can leave your site unprotected and vulnerable to hacking.

This mod will check the news every hour and at your option PM, and/or post the news to your forums. The idea is to PM one or more Admins and/or post in your staff forum so everyone is aware of the news.

Each option is independently controlled-
  • PM one or more users
  • Post a new thread in a forum of your choice
  • Post a new post into an existing thread of your choice

Note- The first time the mod runs it will pull all old news (usually 5 to 6 items) so you will get a "flood" of PMs or posts. After that initial flood is over the old news is recorded in the database as having been delivered and you won't get multiple posts/PMs again unless vBulletin puts out more than one news item as a time. They rarely post Admin CP news, it may be weeks or months between updates.

This mod creates the Scheduled Task called "AdminCP News as Posts or PMs" that is set to run hourly. You can adjust the timing by editing the task in Scheduled Task Manager.

This mod does not use phrases- News is delivered in English only as it is only posted in English.

Another Note- The nature of vBulletin scheduled tasks requires traffic on the board to work. If you have a forum with little traffic (no one views it) then scheduled tasks will often get skipped.

Compatible and tested with VB 3.8.x and VB 4.x.x. May work with older versions of VB 3.x as well but not tested.
