Dear All,

Just a quick update that the Ubuntu Forums have been hacked, this is the
current state of affairs;

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. However, if you were using
   the same password as your Ubuntu Forums one on another service (such as
   email), you are strongly encouraged to change the password on the other
   service ASAP.
   - Ubuntu One, Launchpad and other Ubuntu/Canonical services are NOT
   affected by the breach.

For more please go to http://ubuntuforums.org/announce.html
