Attention Linux.com and LinuxFoundation.org users, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about this matter. The Linux Foundation
