several times in the recent past, VBAX has been shut down for days without warning.
Please tell us when you are going to take it off the air.

There were no planned shut downs, the site was having issues with the server which I had to work on.

May I echo Sam's comments. This is a great site and hopefully the issues that were troubling are now fixed.

Apparently not.
Your webprovider can show a message that the website is temporarily out of order.

Do we use vBulletin?

Aug 10:


A simple one-line exploit has been published for a zero-day pre-authentication remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in the vBulletin forum software.
vBulletin is an immensely popular online forum software utilized by large brands such as Electronic Arts, Zynga, Sony, Pearl Jam, NASA, Steam, and many more.
In September 2019, an unknown security researcher disclosed a zero-day RCE vulnerability (https://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2019/Sep/31) in vBulletin's versions 5.0 through 5.4, which was tracked as CVE-2019-16759 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-16759).
Using this vulnerability, attackers could remotely exploit a bug in vBulletin's PHP Module to execute any PHP command on the remote server without logging into the forum.
This vulnerability was given a 'Critical' severity rating of 9.8/10 due to its ease of use and its ability to remotely execute commands on vulnerable vBulletin servers.
