nothing in any of those articles says anything about phpbb being compromised.
they mention the fact that most of them were running phpbb, but don't even say if any of the phpbb files were involved in the process.
also, the articles seem to be someone just rehashing what they read on another site and posting it.
they are not even consistent in what they say happened.
