BleepingComputer runs on IPB (Invasion Power Board). It's written in the bottom-right corner of the page.

Well, I would say that security wise, IPB is better than MyBB so there's that to take into account too.

I guess so. My forum uses mybb but there are only a handful of users.

I don't think the software a forum runs on matter to attract users or not. Personally, I've only known MyBB forums (actively) until I discovered the UNITE forums (and Sysnative + TSF). Even thought they lack some MyBB features I like, they have their strong point as well.
