About a month ago I received word that a vulnerability had been found in the popular phpBB forum software. I promptly updated the forum I manage (at ifeminists.net) to phpBB 2.0.11, which fixes the problem. Now it's reported that a new worm, Santy.A, is exploiting this vulnerability to spread from one web site to another. If you are running phpBB versions 2.0.10 or earlier, you should upgrade your forum software now. —brad
