    Default Any members of Ubuntu Forums here

    You may want to change your password if you are also a member at UbuntuForums and use the same password for both sites.

    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 but even so users are strongly encouraged to change their passwords on other services if you are using the same one.
    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.
