ubuntuforums.org compromised

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi folks, I tried to enter ubuntuforums.org a while ago and saw an announcement saying it has been compromised. Seems that the crackers got the users' database too. Thought I'd post here, for people who use both UF and LQ (like me; though I don't regularly use Ubuntu, I do hang at UF sometimes). This is part of the announcement at UF: Quote: Ubuntu Forums is down for maintenance There has been a security breach on the Ubuntu Forums. The Canonical IS team is working hard as we speak to restore normal operations. This page will be updated regularly with progress reports. (HowTos)
