Virus trying to run from gb64 site

Sun Jul 01, 2007 4:47 am

When retrieving pages from gb64.com, I randomly get a blank page with a red square and the browser warning "This site wants to run add-on microsoft data access - remote data services".

A similar problem recently happened to gamedev.net earlier this year:

From a discussion on webmasterworld.com, it sounds like this is caused by an SQL injection exploit:

Hope this helps.. the phpBB site doesn't list a lot of info about security problems, but it sounds like this forum software has many potential issues. Just search Google for phpBB 2.0.4 exploit.
