    Ubuntu Forums Hacked

    Thought this may be important to some of you.

    Their site now displays:

    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.
