Kent posted this over on the mod's forum at korg but AFAIK, this is the only phpBB board in our family.

Quote:
Itís a perl script attacking the phpbb sites.

This virus spreads on web servers running the phpBB 2.x application. Other systems are not affected.

The worm uses Google to search for target systems to attack, by running a query for text present on web pages that are served by phpBB. When a potential victim site is found, the worm attacks the phpBB software, by exploiting a highlighting vulnerability. For information on this vulnerability, see:

Hi Les,

Thanks for the concern, however never fear, this forum has already been upgraded to version 2.0.11 which is not susceptible to this particular exploit. Thanks anyway.

Rod.
