Interestingly, this worm used Google as a tool to detect vulnerable websites. That specific search is now supposed to be blocked. Still, I tried some searches and found that I’m third from the top when searching for “viewtopic.php” – one of the search strings perhaps used by the worm – among about 7,910,000. Very strange.

It’s not that strange, Rainer… you have changed your phpBB settings to redirect to this weblog page whenever a user access your viewtopic.php page, something that doesn’t happen when you access viewtopic.php in a default phpBB installation. That’s why your weblog is on the top of Google’s list when you search for viewtopic.php.
