As a postscript to this, a worm is hitting the phpBB forum software. 
It uses google to find targets.  pcHDTV.com was vulnerable because
google has them indexed (google search "powered by phpBB
site:pchdtv.com" to see how the worm found them).  The "13" means it's
the 13th infection of that particular instance of the worm.

The poor pcHDTV fellas just can't catch a break.  Hope they had backups...

If you run phpBB sites...well, I'm sure you already know.
