Debian server hacked

The Debian GNU/Linux project today admitted a hacker had compromised one of its internal servers. "Early this morning we discovered that someone had managed to compromise," Debian developer James Troup wrote in an email to the Debian community shortly before 4am AEST.

"We've taken the machine offline and are preparing to reinstall it," Troup continued, noting a number of key services were currently offline as a result. OptusNet News
