I received the same type of email which included an attempt at extortion, etc.

I would strongly amplify the request to the admins to update the server & vBulletin. If the server is compromised, then the issue goes beyond someone stealing passwords. From my experience, they can also insert trojans and other malware directly on the site which can lead to the site getting blocked by google and ISPs. It's a huge hassle getting back from that.
