I did it a few weeks ago (assuming it's the same product), during the course of which I verified they had a comment injection vulnerability that they subsequently patched. They don't support encryption and that has continued to be a sign that you're probably 50/50 going to find them vulnerable.

I haven't done a write up of it. There wasn't anything unusual that I recall, apart from the bug, it was self-service configuration via web interface.
