Just installed it! I'm happy that the phpBB devs obviously have quick reactions to new exploits surfacing and take everything serious, even stuff that might be taken lightly with a new version so close (at least the second one, path disclosure, sounds not very severe to me).

2.0.13 has been out since the 27th so they have released 2 version updates in a week. Pretty cool if you ask me but I still can't wait until version 3.0. My current forum I am not going to upgrade but I will use 3.0 for another site. Possibly another forum on the same site that I have now. Who knows -

I'm not staff or anything but i strongly recommend upgrading to V2.0.13 if you got 2.0.12 because it has a MAJOR security fix, although the code required to fix it is only one charactert it is very important,

I think the only change (other than the path disclosure fix) is the change of == to === in one of the if statements, This may look like not much but === is type specific comparision, what i mean is it will only return true if both operands have the same type
5 == '5' - TRUE
5 === '5' - FALSE

i think it may be possible for anyone to gian admin access or something if you don't upgrade.
Its only one line and there are instructions on how to modify it manually at http://www.phpbb.com" target="_blank

If any of this is incorrect please correct me
