PHP Hole Exploited by Hackers
Hackers really have no conscience. Why else would they attack PHP? What did PHP ever do to them? But yet, that's exactly what they did. They found flaws in the revered Web scripting language and gone right after them.
One flaw lets these creepbags install their own malware (probably just a slight rework of something some other creepbag wrote -- which was, itself, just a rework of something some other creepbag found and fiddled with) or rip off your source code.
These jerks are out and about with this attack, as Trustwave SpiderLabs found direct evidence in its honeypot earlier this week.
The PHP Group Web site has info on how you can to see if your Web site is vulnerable and has already released emergency fixes.
