    The Beyond Compare forum is currently disabled. Since it uses vBulletin this is most likely due to the vulnerability in vBulletin; see this thread here at WSF.

    Quotes from the home page of Scooter Software :
    https://www.scootersoftware.com/index.php
    "Important: We have been made aware of a vulnerability in our forum software and have disabled the forums until the issue is resolved."
