    I see that the phpbb in the plesk 7.0.2 for windows is version 2.0.8a

    Is this version safe to use? I thought everything below 2.0.11 was exploitable by that nasty worm that defaces sites?

    Yes it is. It NEEDS to be upgraded to 2.0.11

    Same with PHPMyadmin and PHP itself. I've tried updating both of these but only got PHP updated, phpmyadmin is using some funky php3 extension that I cannot seem to override. I'm kinda pissed off about that, at least with Ensim I can just copy over top of my folders with the Vendor released security patches or upgrades and the software is upgraded - SO SIMPLE! I can't seem to do that with Plesk, I have to do some convoluted upgrade process?? which is no where to be found in their documentation or on here :mad:

    Ensim wins this round.....

    I have posted a small Perl script to detect possible vulnerable phpBB installations. The script also enables a workaround.
