Now that our esteemed Site Admin and his colleagues have changed APC to VBulletin we will not have to suffer this problem!

Security was one of the reasons we moved over. I understand the defacing of was not caused by the phpBB2 software, but rather AWSTATS, a third-party weblog analyzer.

VB has gone from 3.0.3 to 3.0.6 in just a few weeks because of security issues. I agree that no software is totally secure.

Security was a reason for our move, it wasn't the only one. VB is a much more mature product at this point in time. I'm sure when phpBB 3 is released, it will catch up.
The largest community, Gaia, runs on phpBB technically. However, it has been modified so much that it isn't close to the original software.

I still think phpBB2 is a good product and support the open source initiative. I just think vB is better now.
