Well, yes. I had a small problem with a user level break in, via the 
Coppermine Gallery package which Fantastico had not given me the option 
upgrade to the latest security patch) so that I had to upgrade manually 
in the end.


The break in allowed a remote web user to run a file browser that could 
view the files available (to the web account, as I recall). This would 
include such files as /etc/passwd etc,
