www.phpBB.com compromised Posted by Sami @ 13:46 GMT

phpBB's web site got compromised, and it is currently unavailable. phpBB is a popular web based discussion system.

According to the statement on their front page at the moment, the intrusion has nothing to do with the phpBB software itself. Instead there is an unconfirmed report that compromise may have been done using a security vulnerability in Awstats instead.
