    So what was the Hack?

    I am curious as to the Hack that brought webdeveloper.com down and most of QuinnStreet.

    Was it a bug in Ubuntu or in vBulletin.

    It was interesting poking around the code set vBulletin and have to say I have never seen an administration console like that before, C99madShell V2.0 Madnet edition.

    Interesting and a clever exploit, so the script exploited a weakness in both the server and vBulletin if what I am reading is correct, subverting the system AV and breaking vBulletins upload interface.

    Brad Jones and his staff should be complemented for
    getting the site back up and running so quickly.
