Re: phpBB Worm

Hi!

This assumes you're seeing GET-requests, but there are other ways
(e.g. POST) to exploit such code.

Whilst I understand your point, it should be noted that this vulnerability in phpBB is susceptible only to GET-based attacks: the vulnerable data is sourced from $HTTP_GET_VARS.

And it seems worse, we see even upgraded phpbb2 installs (2.0.11) succesfully and activly being exploited.

Loads of those, and all request the files from civa.org

This is on a patched phpbb2, so be aware!!

Bye,
Raymond.
