    Recently the Dutch HardwareInfo site was hacked by an attack on its vBulletin forumsoftware.

    Obfuscated link, in Dutch:
    hxxp://nl.hardware.info/nieuws/25064/belangrijk-alle-hardwareinfo-wachtwoorden-gereset

    It was quickly discovered.

    Interesting is that according to that article they have changed now the password "storing" from MD5 to bcrypt and that the developpers of vBulletin has so far refused to use a more secure way than MD5, at least according to that article.
