I'm not an authority on the matter, but as far as I know the only thing you should worry about is in the thread "The Final phpBB 2 Security Vulnerability", in this same forum. It's an exploit related to posting images and stealing an admin/moderator's session.

Just be sure that you follow the instructions provided in the thread exactly.

Also - depending on which version of PHPBB2 you start with, it is best to update from that point version to version ending up with the final 2.0.24
