Le site hébergeant les forums Ubuntu ont été piraté ce samedi. Canonical IS vient de diffuser un message à ses membres et a fermé les forums. Les pirates ont mis la main sur a base de données et les informations permettant aux inscrits de se connecter aux Ubuntu Forums. Identifiants, mot de passe et emails ont été volés. Ubuntu est un système d’exploitation Linux, sous Debian.  Voici le message diffusé par la société Canonical :

 

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.

What we know

  • Unfortunately the attackers have gotten every user’s local username, password, and email address from the Ubuntu Forums database.
  • The passwords are not stored in plain text. However, if you were using the same password as your Ubuntu Forums one on another service (such as email), you are strongly encouraged to change the password on the other service ASAP.
  • Ubuntu One, Launchpad and other Ubuntu/Canonical services are NOT affected by the breach.

Progress report

  • 2013-07-20 2011UTC: Reports of defacement
  • 2013-07-20 2015UTC: Site taken down, this splash page put in place while investigation continues.
