phpBB 2.0.11 is not vulnerable to that attack.  Since phpBB 2.0.11 was
released in November 2004 [1] that vulnerability is only six years out
of date.

I also have a tough time believing that this is the first time the
vulnerability has ever been disclosed on Security Focus.  Unless I'm
mistaken it's basically Santy [2] and given how much attention Santy
received if this is the first time Security Focus is discussing it it
really doesn't speak highly of Security Focus.

I mean, seriously, is it too much to ask that the vulnerabilities
disclosed on Security Focus are *new*?
