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 work as a software developer (Apprentice) for a company in Muttenz. Our main target is Windows, but as host system we use Linux. We are also interested in Linux development.

At the moment I am the new organizer of the local Fellowship-Group in Zurich.


Personal interest:

  • FSFE and Fellowship-Group Zurich
  • Linux
  • Linux development
  • C++/Qt and cross-platform development
