phpbb -- privilege elevation and path disclosure


The phpbb developer group reports:

phpBB Group announces the release of phpBB 2.0.13, the "Beware of the furries" edition. This release addresses two recent security exploits, one of them critical. They were reported a few days after .12 was released and no one is more annoyed than us, having to release a new version ini such a short period of time. Fortunately both fixes are easy and in each case just one line needs to be edited.
