Codeweavers has announced
that access to the WineHQ database has been compromised. "On the one
hand, we saw no evidence of harm to any database. We saw no evidence of any
attempt to change the database (and candidly, using the real appdb or
bugzilla is the easy way to change the database). Unfortunately, the
attackers were able to download the full login database for both the appdb
and bugzilla. This means that they have all of those emails, as well as
the passwords. The passwords are stored encrypted, but with enough effort
and depending on the quality of the password, they can be cracked.
Anybody who has reused a password stored there probably wants to make some
changes fairly soon.
