code were wroten. this happened on two my sites, which have a minibb 2.0.3 and on the which has 2RC4 version, so i and forum community think that the problem is in minibb... but we even don't know what happened, what used, etc. pleace, help us! if everyone could write anything to our files, it's enormously bad

I went to both sites and couldn't find any problem; I guess a more detailed description could help.

Another reason could be your own custom modifications that weren't safe enough to pass the exploit test...

Check your pc for trojans/viruses and never save the ftp passwords for your hosting accounts in ftp clients, as many of them save passwords in plain text or other easy accesible way.
This could be one of the causes, and has been reported at many hosting companies, also, ask alphaspace to check ftp logs for activity on your account, i'm sure they will find that "you hav e modified the files by ftp", and they'll be right

I too heard previously about this exploit and so far I could tell it's not related to miniBB. Most probably it is from Psyme series.

I'd recommend to change all FTP passwords and upgrade to the latest release (RC4 is too old...)

OK, thanks 2ramil. At least we know miniBB script wasn't the reason. I notice more and more trojans or hack attempts these days ... :(
