Re: Code to Hack phpBB

This is the old highlight exploit that was fixed November 2004. The files in that archive were identified as Santy.C by Norton.

Those files will not exploit 2.0.11 forums, reguardless of what anyone says.

Re: Is it safe to use phpBB?

Might be interesting to see how they are correcting the problem with an .htaccess file. See below. It means nothing to me so could be a red herring. RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(.*)echr(.*) [OR] RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(.*)highlight=\%2527 RewriteRule ^.*$ - [F,L] Yes, that w...

Re: new phpBB worm affects 2.0.11

Thats the highlight attack (based on the urldecode issue). Since urldecode was removed from highlight string processing in 2.0.11, this does NOT affect 2.0.11. Either the poster hadn't upgraded properly, or had upgraded late and then found the scripts on his server.

Re: Where does one report a bug these days?

Current advice is to keep it fresh in your mind. We should hopefully have phpBB.com up again, and you can then report it at the secuirty tracker. :)

Re: phpBB's storage of time and dates in the database

Well, here's something that not many people know... windows stores dates as a 64bit int.... but not in any logical way... Basically it stores a file's date in a 64-bit value representing the number of 100-nanosecond intervals since January 1, 1601. Yes... number of 100 nanosecond intervals since 01/...

Re: What features will be compromised by 'safe mode' ?

Please do not mention fans. My computer would be running non-stop if that noise wouldn't make me crazy. While at risk of veering off topic, assuming you've got a decent enough motherboard and set of fans, grab speedfan . Basicly this program allows you to control various speeds of fans based on the...
