A recent vBulletin 4 (4.1.4 - 4.1.11 Suite & Forum) report indicated that there was a potential XSS exploit vector in the editor. Once the cause of the issue was isolated, code changes were made to eliminate the reported threat.

The issue does not affect vBulletin 3.x and vBulletin 4.0 - 4.1.3.

This patch has been issued for vBulletin 4.1.4 through 4.1.11.
