We have made patches available for the following versions of vBulletin Connect:
- 5.6.9 PL1
- 5.6.8 PL1
- 5.6.7 PL1
Installing the PatchFor the best results with your vBulletin site, it is recommended to upgrade to vBulletin 5.6.9 PL1 if you are not using 5.6.9 currently.
Using PHAR (default download)Due to the PHAR download, you will need to download the complete vBulletin package for your version and replace the /core/vb/vb.phar file to apply the security fix. This file will show up as a false positive in your Suspect File Diagnostics. If you replace all files from the new download, then the false positive will not occur.
- Download the appropriate files for your version of vBulletin 5.6.X
- Upload all files found within the zip file to your server. Make sure to overwrite the existing files on your server.
