Wrong as a matter of fact, I reported when using XenForo (search XenForo for the thread their, if they have not deleted it since) that I created. How two files got code injected in them (same hacking code listed on paste bin searching google on it) because XenForo after installing made config and another file 777 chmod permission, which lead to the hacking. I didn't change chmod to 777, XenForo did it after install, only forum software I've used that makes files 777 chmod after installing it.

So your assumption that no site using XenForo has ever been hacked, well is wrong. And that's the first and only time I've ever had a forum run (or any site run) hacked. It may not be an exploit in the forum software itself, but the installer sure left my forum wide open because of that silly 777 chmod forced on some files used by it.

Not sure I agree, after they converted from vB3 to XF it's been quite noticeable a lot more XF users have started to post their that didn't before, even become pretty vocal posters. Most topics posted about XF get deleted or censored to death (posts deleted) in defence of XenForo. While it seems bashing of all other forum software gets a much easier ride with less moderation. Seen the latest topic bashing Burning Board posted on TAZ... you'll get my meaning, and funny how that topic has been allowed to run like it has (because XenForo got brought into it, saying BB4 is a clone of it). However, go start a thread bashing XenForo and see what happens to it, how quick they are to start deleting posts in it, along with banning you from the thread itself from posting further in it.

Don't mind the fact people may be disappointed in vBulletin and air it their on TAZ. But when a site takes sides on forum software like TAZ does, then that's different if they can't accept it being done with them all.

People used to say exactly the same about Linux v Windows.
As it grows and becomes widely knowm, its only a matter of time before the hackers start to target it.
3 years is quite a lot of time. But what is happening with vb 5 btw?

Please dont post exagerations here. Two together does not equal a "weekly basis".
If you are going to post the usual nosense then feel free to do so to TAZ, or any of the other places that the trolls hang out.

Paul, I am not posting nonsense nor am I exaggerating anything. I am merely stating facts. vB 5 released 2 security patches the last 2 weeks 6 days apart. If that does not classify a weekly basis then I don''t know what does.

A weekly basis suggests every single week of the year.

As always, vBulletin takes security seriously and if a patch is deemed to be required, one is released, six days apart or not. I applaud this.

However if only a one-time or even lets say for example it happened twice it's still rare and therefor does not constitute a "weekly basis" as that would be ongoing as that's what "weekly basis" relates to in meaning respectively.

Clearly you dont.

A weekly basis means something happens [once] every week.

I never said they did.. But it's a lot more welcoming and actually pleasant to use since they upgraded.
Anyone who considers XF an upgrade from VB3 needs to see a psycologist.

As it turns out, they appear to be having problems with custom code they had with VB3 and getting it to work with XF. They are also having to implement things that Howard said they never would in order to attract and keep posters, since changing to XF, after the initial surge the daily post count has dropped significantly, partly due to posters not liking the change, and partly due to every thread digressing into bashing VB and IB.

This week 's.

Something such ridiculous I have seen only with vB. Not even the free scripts have had this kind of issue with security.
