New worm affects web forums

— 10:48 AM on December 21, 2004

Kaspersky Lab has issued a news release regarding a new worm which affects web sites running phpBB. The worm uses Google to search for vulnerable sites, then uses a vulnerability in older versions of phpBB to gain access to the system, and overwrites files with a variety of extensions, including .htm and .php.

As a result, our forums are currently offline while we determine our vulnerability to this worm. We will try to get them back online as soon as possible.

Update: Forums back online.
