board hacked

Nasty jolt this morning as the purple mermaid website was hacked. Some bot from script-kiddies exploited a known hole in the phpBB to overwrite all php and html files with a ‘you b33n defaced’ type message.
Well Done, Aviators!

My own fault for dragging my feet with my security updates I suppose. Thankfully I was able to return the site to normality with the hour although a fresh install of phpBB and Gallery is in order.
