Linux Foundation Websites Breached

The Linux Foundation has shutdown both the Linux.com and LinuxFoundation.org websites after discovering a potential security breach.

The Linux Foundation alerted its users in an email sent Sunday night, reporting that a security breach was discovered on September 8th. The breach may have compromised user information including passwords and email addresses.

According to the Linux Foundation, the breach is connected to the attack on the kernel.org site which was first publicly reported last week. Though the breach was just discovered last week, the actual attack on kernel.org may have occurred as early as August 12th. It's unclear at this point, when the Linux Foundation's sites were breached.
