    There are two exploits, there is that one, which the original (not sure about the new varients) doesn't use, and then there is the highlight() exploit, which the wom does use.

    The highlight exploit was fixed in 2.0.11, but the other one, which is the unserialze thing that the above patches, is not a phpBB bug, but rather a PHP bug.. so.. that patch is just a workaround. The best thing to do is to get the latest php release, since many many other scripts use that function, but if all you run is phpBB, you may be safe..
