Wow. People sure are getting serious about Web Accelerator.
Whackbag runs off Vbulletin. Snow, who runs some great forums where you can unofficially discuss InsideGoogle and InsideMicrosoft at Aboho, pointed me to this thread where it is confirmed that Vbulletin version 3 is protected against any sort of Web Accelerator security threat. However, Vbulletin 2 is not, so upgrade if you want to remain secure.
