Important security announcement regarding MyBB merge system versions 1.6.1 and earlier.

If you’ve used the MyBB Merge System v1.6.1 or earlier please download the file attached here, upload it to your forum root, and run it by going to http://yourdomain.com/yourforumpath/icr.php for security purposes.

The reason for this is a potential security breach related to the “old db” password being stored in the datacache in plaintext form. Thanks goes to euantor & Malcolm for reporting this.

  1. Dylan, it wasn’t euantor who found it, it was me. But I do not want credit, I just wanted to let you know that it had been reported a while ago😛

  2. I didn’t thank him for finding it, but for reporting😛
    But thank you too😉

    I had honestly forgotten all about that thread, so I’m glad you mentioned it. This is why I put things on the bug tracker as soon as I read a post now.
