Okay so we all need security right?

Well if you want extra sucurity it helps to remove the vbulletin version,
this way if someone wants to use an exploit on you they won't know the version!

vBulletin version will be removed from the following pages:

Note: This hack is not intended to show you how to remove vbulletin copyright!

First, login to admin control panel.
Under Styles & Templates tab go Style Manager | Select skin and click Edit Templates on dropdown menu | Edit Footer template
Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


The version is now removed from the footer.
Now we'll remove it from the admin/mod login.

Edit includes/adminfunctions.php

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace With:

You can still check the version in other places. Believe me, hackers know about this.
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/clien...etin_global.js (on the beggining)

And check the source of this page - <meta name="generator" content="vBulletin 3.6.4" />

Question

Ummmmmm...as some other members have already pointed out...there are much easier/better ways to remove the version number, but why is a hack/thread by someone that has been "banned" still open?

A member being banned doesn't necessarily mean that all of their contributions will be removed.

In some cases, there would be more punishment to the community than the banned person, especially if it is only a temporary ban.
