Default SourceForge applies global password reset after hack attack

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/01...hack_response/

Quote:
Open-source code repository SourceForge has advised users to change their passwords following a concerted hacking attack.

The attack, launched last Wednesday, targeted developer infrastructure and involved the compromise of SourceForge.net servers. SourceForge detected the attack and quickly disabled CVS, ishell, file uploads, and project web updates as a precaution against deeper compromise.

The open-source outfit reckons it nipped the attack before it got very far. However, analysis of server logs after the attack revealed that an SSH daemon had been modified to carry out a password-sniffing attack.
