Two readers (thanks, Ricardo and Ken) pointed us to a story on digg that appeared this morning. The story links to a posting on a German board about a potential phpBB hack attack coming in the next few weeks:
"During the last few days a bot using a name FuntKlakow, has been registering to maybe thousands of phpBB forums. Some speculate that the bot's owners are preparing to exploit an unreported vulnerability."
We might be chasing a ghost here but it's always good to be on the lookout for something like this.
