The hackers say they hacked the forum of vBulletin user MacRumors.com using the same exploit, which is now up for sale

According to vBulletin Solutions, over 100,000 community websites are running on vBulletin, including some operated by Zynga, Electronic Arts, Sony Pictures, NASA, Valve Corporation and other well known companies.

UbuntuForums.org, a community website for the Ubuntu Linux distribution with over 1.8 million registered accounts, is also using vBulletin and was hacked back in July. The MacRumors administrators described the recent compromise of their forum as similar to the UbuntuForums.org hack.
