Post subject:  Virus squashed

I removed an exploit on this board that appeared due to a phpBB vulnerability. The hackers modified two of the forum descriptions to add an iframe command that would pop up some kind of virus. From what I gather, a large number (hundreds) of phpBB boards were hit in this manner during the past couple of weeks.

I've applied the latest patch... this error should not come back. I've also posted a pointed question to the people there about why this happened.

And GET FIREFOX. I don't know about IE, but Firefox asked me courteously what I wanted to do with that popup.
