Thread: Urgent - Delete your entire /install/ directory after installation or upgrade of VB

    Exclamation Urgent - Delete your entire /install/ directory after installation or upgrade of VB

    I've seen some talk of a possible exploit found for VB 4.x. Nothing confirmed yet, but would suggest all VB4 and VB3 Admins immediately delete the entire /install/ directory from your server.

    Usually the instructions were to only delete the install.php file. Now it appears you are better off deleting the entire /install/ directory. Better safe than sorry.

    Keep a copy on your local PC, you will need to re-upload it to use tools.php, if ever needed.
