The UBB.Threads development team has identified a serious exploit that can allow a standard user to obtain elevated permissions on UBB.threads forums and upload malicious files.

To protect yourself from the vulnerability, patches must be immediately applied if you are running version 7.3 and later. Patches for each version are now available for download in the member’s area of UBBCentral.com:

https://www.ubbcentral.com/members/members.php

To apply the patch upload the files provided in the patch to the appropriate directories in the UBB.threads installation on your server, overwriting the existing files.

After further research and review we have issued a p2 patch to further enhance security. Owners that have not patched yet can use the p2 patch directly. If you have already patched using p1, please update to p2 the same way you applied p1.
