Fedora Servers Breached

The Register reports that servers belonging to the Fedora Project were breached over the weekend by an unknown attacker who gained access though a team member’s account.  The compromise of fedorapeople.org meant that the attacker briefly had the ability to push changes to Fedora’s SCM system.  There’s no evidence any such updates were made or that Fedora’s systems were subject to any vulnerabilities or exploits.  Action was taken quickly to freeze the account and forensic investigative work began immediately upon notice.
