    Please Upgrade to latest version 5.0.0.

    In case you have any issues, please post then here: http://vibethemes.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?30-vSlider

    Note: We've removed Timthumb.php and migrated to responsive Flexslider 2.0.
    If your slider was created out of Posts, do not panic. Try out the new vSlider Slide Generator, you'll get back your slides in matter of seconds.

    Hi Mr Vibe,

    Thanks you for the upgrade. I recently have lots of security trouble with WP 3.5 and a couple of plugin.

    I think it's a good idea to not use Timthumb.php who use temp file in excessand can filly our server of rubish t'ill go down.

    I have to report many attack technics to WP 3.5. It seem, there is an open hole if you allow writing from web server simply.
