Ubuntu Forums Security Breach

Monday, July 18th, 2016

Evidently, even Ubuntu is prone to the occasional security problem.

Canonical announced today that it detected a security breach on the Ubuntu Forums site. The company has since then taken corrective actions and restored the forums service. According to the company, it became aware of the breach on July 14, 2016 after a member of the Ubuntu Forums Council informed the company that someone claimed to have a copy of the Forums database.
