Most will probably say vBulletin, although I've never had any security issues with phpBB as long as I keep it updated (and I've run them for years). You should keep any software up to date though. I've seen vBulletin's hacked often too. And IPBs.
Most of it's personal preference.

I've built and maintained a lot of forums. My personal preference is IPB but I think vBulletin should afford you an equal amount of security. It will come down to the features you find most useful.

I don't normally hold a grudge about any one one for a long time, but you made my list way back then.
When I thought that you was ok, you let me down big time, so I had to drop your progam and remove all the links I had for your program.
I'm not going to get on the details of that past bad experience I had with you, but I would just say this:
If you ever open a forum anywhere, don't ignore any of the questions that you might get there, otherwise you would be just be another merchant without any clue of your affiliates, or just friends.
I don't even know why I am replying on this thread, but I think I may still like you, but , maybe you still think that you're mighty me or some of us, but..... only time will tell....
