When you say a VB Staff Member you mean a vBulletin employee?

Same problem here.. Received at least 100, with all recipients visible.. If this is a US based sender, this would be illegal.

I did tell him to check their email client though.

Where would they obtain VBulletin license holder email addresses? Regardless, if it is an employee then it's inappropriate and should be dealt with.

If this turns out to be the case hopefully it's not handled as another CYA situation.

Given you just spent the last week commenting about the fact the vb.org database was accessed by hackers, its not rocket science to figure out a possible source.

If you have some evidence, then feel free to share it, otherwise dont start accusing anyone, be they staff, member or otherwise.

I cannot figure out what CYA is supposed to stand for.

If the person wishes to reply, he will reply to this thread, but i won't be in the middle of this situation, i just happen to know who it was. I know he is nice and have vb and vbseo experience. So i am not disclosing names.

This is all i can share, the pm reply

Yes, vBulletin5 needs much more time however I started to see a more stable now. Don't upgrade until you see that it's the right time for your users and your site.

About if it's mine or not, It's not 100% mine we are more than one but I'm one of them.

I can understand that, but at the same time, you bought the subject up, and inferred that they were associated with the sending of the e-mails.

What you really mean is that this person is one of a few people associated with the vbrewrite project - other than that, there is nothing to currently link them with the e-mail.

I still have no idea who you mean, but feel free to tell me via PM if you dont wish to post in public.

According to this site- http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/we...on-web-server/

These 4 domains are hosted on the same server-
menaprof.com
vbfoster.com
vbrewrite.com
marcomamdouh.com

vbfoster is a mod on vBulletin.org here-
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=281347

If you go to their website and click the purchase link you get an error that the SSL certificate is registered to vbrewrite, not vbfoster.

So it looks like it is the same people as behind vbfoster.
