Yotatech affected VerticalScope hack?

OK, second attempt...

I read yesterday that a February hack captured 45 user accounts across multiple forums hosted by VerticalScope. The attack exploits MD5 in older versions of vbulletin.

As an example, pirate4x4.com is among the sites that were compromised. To my knowledge Pirate has not posted a notice to its users.

I'd hope that users of auto forums don't have CC#s stored in their accounts, but I'm sure many have home addresses and phone numbers stored in PMs (not to mention legit email in account profiles).

I was told yesterday in an email from our hosts that we are not affected here, so we are safe.
That was for older versions of VB than what we are running here.

I checked POR, here is a thread.
If you are also on POR, you should change your password there.
