  11. You state that ClipBucket has “complete security from SQL injections.” Not true. I had ClipBucket 2.8.3 installed, last week it was SQL injection hacked through two of it’s scripts that allowed the hackers to install their own scripts that let them sent out thousands of spam emails from my server. I opened a help ticket with ClipBucket, it took them several days to respond and they sent me a link to their forum that had a link to a github page with “patches” to fix those two exploits, I had to manually edit the files myself to fix them. This week the hackers have found more exploits in ClipBucket that let them install more scripts that sent out thousands more spam emails. I opened another help ticket and have yet to hear anything from them. I uninstalled ClipBucket and I am now searching for a new video hosting script.
