Submission + - Nokia Developers' Forum Hacked

benwiggy writes: Nokia has been sending out emails to users of its developer forum, informing them that it has been compromised by an SQL injection.

[i]"During our ongoing investigation of the incident we have discovered that a database table containing developer forum members' email addresses has been accessed, by exploiting a vulnerability in the bulletin board software that allowed an SQL Injection attack. Initially we believed that only a small number of these forum member records had been accessed, but further investigation has identified that the number is significantly larger.

The database table records includes members’ email addresses and, for fewer than 7% who chose to include them in their public profile, either birth dates, homepage URL or usernames for AIM, ICQ, MSN, Skype or Yahoo. However, they do not contain sensitive information such as passwords or credit card details and so we do not believe the security of forum members’ accounts is at risk."[/i]

The developer forum has been taken offline for the time being. I guess it's lucky no one is developing for Nokia these days!
