What kind of "frightening security breaches" are we talking here, out of  
curiousity? I mean, let's say (hypothetically speaking) I was running a  
phpBB on remote hosting on a computer I didn't even have shell access to  
(I don't even think it's set up to allow PHP to run commands), and I do  
nightly backups of the phpBB data. Do I have anything at all to worry
