[Discuss] MyBB 1.2.11 Released - IMPORTANT Security Update
metalappie Wrote:Not sure if it's relevant to this security issue but I patched the forums last night (which went smoothly) and this morning I noticed this really odd PHP file in the inc directory. It was called ._class_parser.php, but when I checked the file it didn't contain any PHP code but just some unreadable garbage. I'm now wondering if some idiot actually tried hacking our forums or was this just a corrupt file?

Forums still work great though, I'm just wondering if this could have been some hacker trying to use the exploits described in this announcement?

That could be residue from your FTP client. Whether it is or it's a malicious file it's safe to say that it can be deleted as it isn't necessary for the function of MyBB.
