Hack of the phpbb_config.site_desc field

Post by bspittles »

My board was hacked last night, with the following placed in the phpbb_config.site_desc field (rather than the usual "Welcome to my forum" message):

Code: Select all

<style>#forumbbot {display:none;}</style><div id=forumbbot><a href=http://www.elite-charms.com/>italian charms bracelets</a></div>
I'm running .11 so I know I need to upgrade. I just thought I'd let everyone know.
