    they ran a very very outdated version of IPB.... tsk tsk.... that should have been updated and kept secure like any other part of the server.

    inb4 the ppl that go "what about forum mods??" they didn't use any that would be affected by version updates. and you can calk it up to lazy ass addon devs.

    also nvidia should have the resources to keep thier server software up to date. they aren't a mom and pop company or an independant community... they have a whole team dedicated and well funded. I've seen little forums keep thier server software up to date way faster with less.... so that's inexcusable as well.
