http://permalink.gmane.org – Hi, one of our hosted website has been hacked. The website-editors website was a leftover of some past experiments of moving www.gnome.org to Plone. For some reason the service has been kept up and running since several months without anyone looking at it, that means two things: - the software has been left there unmaintained. - no security fixes have been applied, thus the attackers used a security hole on the Plone software to get access to the server. We've been looking and reviewing the relevant log files and we didn't notice anything strange, but we plan to rebuild the machine (Software)
