PHPBB Worm -- Will it affect this site?

There's a worm called the Santy Worm infecting PHPBB's all over the net. If the board hasn't been updated to 2.0.11 it can be infected and all the site's files will be deleted.

This board just shows the powered by PHP but no version number. I'm guessing that Xixax was the last to update it though so that would mean the old version is still in effect.

Go here to read more about the worm.

Go here to download the 2.0.11 patch.

Hiya, Mogs... Yes, I did the upgrade a few days ago. That Santy worm was pretty nasty. Thankfully, we didn't get hit!

Good to know. I'm still trying to update some of my client's boards but keep getting sql errors. It's aggrivating but ultimately necessary.
