Submission + - Ubuntu Forums was hacked (ubuntuforums.org)

satuon writes: The popular Ubuntu Forums site is now displaying a message saying that attackers have gained control over the website. What is currently known:

Unfortunately the attackers have gotten every user's local username, password, and email address from the Ubuntu Forums database.
The passwords are not stored in plain text. However, if you were using the same password as your Ubuntu Forums one on another service (such as email), you are strongly encouraged to change the password on the other service ASAP.
Ubuntu One, Launchpad and other Ubuntu/Canonical services are NOT affected by the breach.
