Email from Linux Foundation as at 11 Sept 2011 (GMT +8)

Attention Linux.com and LinuxFoundation.org users,

Important: Security Breach on Linux.com, LinuxFoundation.org

[hidden email]

We are writing you because you have an account on Linux.com,
LinuxFoundation.org, or one of the subdomains associated with these
domains. On September 8, 2011, we discovered a security breach that
may have compromised your username, password, email address and other
information you have given to us. We believe this breach was connected
to the intrusion on kernel.org.

As with any intrusion and as a matter of caution, you should consider
the passwords and SSH keys that you have used on these sites
compromised. If you have reused these passwords on other sites, please
change them immediately. We are currently auditing all systems and
will update public statements when we have more information.

We have taken all Linux Foundation servers offline to do complete
re-installs. Linux Foundation services will be put back up as they
become available. We are working around the clock to expedite this
process and are working with authorities in the United States and in
Europe to assist with the investigation.

The Linux Foundation takes the security of its infrastructure and that
of its members extremely seriously and are pursuing all avenues to
investigate this attack and prevent future ones. We apologize for this
inconvenience and will communicate updates as we have them.

Please contact us at [hidden email] with questions about this matter.

The Linux Foundation
