I don't know if it's the one you were thinking of Cyril but anyways there is a link with more info.

Basically if you are running PHP <4.1.2 with File uploads via multipart forms enabled (default) then your vulnerable.

You know you have chosen the right hosting provider when you read such a warning after reading their notification that they just updated their 700+ servers to fix the problem... ;)
