Since I brought it up....

I'm only stating from personal experience.  I believe the version I was 
using at the time was 2.0.3.  I think they are up to 2.0.18 now.  So, 
there have been a plethora of fixes since.

Losing the board once, understandable.  Things crash.  That's why we do 
back-ups :)  But when it crashed the 2nd time not too long after, I 
didn't even bother looking for my tar.gz backup...  I went looking for 
some more stable software.  I've had 0 issues in almost 2.5 years now 
with invisionboard on a high-traffic 800,000-1,000,000 page views a 
month site.

The only recent mention of a hole in invision is here:

and the solution states to upgrade to the latest version, 2.1.3, thus 
leaving no outstanding known holes.

As an aside:  when i switched, my bandwidth also had a DRAMATIC drop. 
In fact, today, with MANY more users since then (probably 4x the 
traffic) I'm still transferring under 50gb a month.  I was hitting 
60-70GB a month all the time on phpbb.  Something to keep in mind if you 
have a smaller box or limited plan.
