On Friday, September 26, the system hackers team discovered a misconfiguration in the wiki setup. The error, if discovered, would have enabled an unauthorised party to read protected pages and user configurations.

It was possible to read the encrypted password hashes of guest users. Registered Fellows, who log in using their Fellowship password were not affected by this. To all others we recommend changing their wiki password as a precaution.

Profile

Worked in Oil&Gas IT in Aberdeen, UK for around 7 years. Been an avid linux user since around 1999/2000 which fostered my interest in Free Software.

I'm currently looking into setting up an FSFE meeting in Scotland, as it doesn't look like there's currently a group set up. Get in touch if you're interested or want to help.
