Before you blame phpbb, check your data for duplicates.

Also, check that you have a recent version, there was a version a while 
ago that became very well known for a very bad reason - it was 
vulnerable to external attack, and external attackers were very successful.

How many computers can you use to try to debug your problem? I don't 
like to test on production systems, do you?
