Forum resmi komunitas Ubuntu, Ubuntuforums.org, kena hack sejak 12 jam yang lalu. Dilaporkan bahwa si hacker berhasil mendapatkan semua username, password dan email dari database forum.

Jika ada akun social media Anda yang menggunakan password yang sama dengan Ubuntu Forums, disarankan untuk segera mengubahnya.

Berikut keterangan resmi Canonical dari http://ubuntuforums.org/announce.html:

  • 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.
