...it started as a Win project, and I don't see where anything loosely 
related to Linux is mentioned in that article. "On 22 July 2010 the BBC 
reported that there was a serious flaw in vBulletin software that allows 
anyone to easily access the database username and password" That was a 
year ago. I would like to think that any Open Source offering would have 
a hole like that patched within a day or so. Ric
