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.

About Me

I am a student of Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover. I am currently working as a research assistant for the Trust@FHH research group (touchy subject, i know). I´m just getting started here, but eager to get involved.

Fields of interest besides enthusiasm for Free Software include:

  • Computer Programming
  • IT Security
  • Martial Arts
  • Intercultural exchange of ideas

Current Activities

Oh, by the way

I´ve been working six years as event tech/audio engineer before i started my CS studies. If you need technical consulting or a sound guy for an fsfe-event, i can help.
