They are only fixed for 3.0, but where is the update for 2.0!? There
are a lot of 2.0 installations around...
They can be found them by trying the url "<domain>/version.php" on each
host. Since Confixx had usernames with suffix 0 as standard passwords,
it is easy to crack an account. If there is no standard password, try
common ones, there is likely to be at least one stupid user on each
system. After that, the described vulnerabilities can be used to get
root privileges on each 2.0 installation with enabled user-driven
