A major flaw in UBB security has been discovered. I've patched it here at Flare. I've force-changed everyone's passwords. DO NOT RESET YOUR PASSWORD TO WHAT IT WAS BEFORE...

While I really don't think someone tried to pull the exploit on us, it could easily have happened without any of us knowing.

Is this bug(exploit) present in all forums that use UBB?

All UBBs using 5.10 or later are subject to the exploit. This includes the freeware version. UBBs running the latest release of Freeware 2000 and UBB 5.43d are already patched. The TrekBBS is now patched, and Adam has closed up TNO.
I'm currently auditing the source code for any further potential abuse....

Is anyone going to bother telling SFA?

Well, I just checked over there, it appears that they don't know yet.

Right now there are still more bugs being patched... The most recently discovered one doesn't effect us due to it being a feature that we don't use.

It's my understanding that all UBB owners will be contacted by email...

You can change it to something more convenient to remember... Just as long as it's not the same as it was before, you should be fine.
