Issociate.de Newsreader:
phpBB mass-hack being prepared?
March 20, 2006 @ 07:51:03

In this posting included on the Issociate.de site's Newsreader, there's talk of a "massive phpBB hack" that might be taking place.

During the last few days a bot using a name FuntKlakow, has been registering to at least hundreds (maybe thousands) of phpBB forums.

It's an interesting situation and, as suggested in some of the comments on this digg post, will be interesting to see what happens. It is a little odd for that many items to come up on a search for the name that are only profiles for phpBB boards, especially given phpBB's track record...
