|Report: 35,000 vBulletin Sites Easily Hacked Through Failure To Follow Security Advice|

|Internet Brands Inc. warned users that failing to remove the “/install” and “/core/install” directories on sites running 4.x and 5.x versions of the forum software could render them easily hackable. |

You can't run a phpBB forum with the install folder present.
