Submission + - WineHQ Database Hacked (winehq.org)

sixy writes: I received an email from WineHQ that states, "We are sorry to report that recently our login database for the WineHQ Application Database was compromised. We know that the entire contents of the login database was stolen by hackers. The password was encrypted, but with enough effort and depending on the quality of your old password, it could be cracked.

We have closed the hole in our system that allowed read access to our database tables."
