Links for the phpBB forum software compromised

Post by SPF2006 »

Probably not an issue here but FYSA for the admins.
An unknown attacker has compromised download links for the phpBB forum software, according to a statement released today by the phpBB development team.

The hacker compromised only two downloads links, for the phpBB 3.2.2 full package and the phpBB 3.2.1 -> 3.2.2 automatic updater. This is phpBB's latest version, released on January 7, this year. ... The compromised download links were live only for 181 minutes, between 12:02 PM UTC and 15:03 PM UTC on yesterday, January 26.
