hey, my name is Phil. i started learning PHP back in september. for some reason it didn't occur to me until now to join some lj communities about it. i just did some poking around about what looked like a virus going around some good sites and thought i'd leave a note about it, sorry if this is old news for you all:

for those of you who run your own websites, there is a nasty worm going around servers with older versions of phpBB2 installed. it's called NeverEverNoSanity; if you go to a website and see a black background with red text which says "This site has been defaced!" then you know it got hit. anyway, upgrading to the latest version, phpBB 2.0.11 is supposed to fix the problem. just thought i'd let you know.

here's a link: :: View topic - PHP exploits and phpBB.
