Hi Alison - I have a background of many years in IT security. Over the weekend, a new phpBB ‘bot’ threat has surfaced and you all might watch for any accounts registered to the name below. I’d recommend banning the user account FuntKlakow so it can’t auto-register.
I want to make sure one of my favorite forums is protected
phpBB Hack - bot registering user name FuntKlakow
During the last few days a bot using a name FuntKlakow, has been registering to maybe thousands of phpBB forums. Some speculate that the bot’s owners are preparing to exploit an unreported vulnerability

FuntKlakow has now been dealt with.
