Submission + - JBoss security incident (jboss.org)

jbatista writes: The JBoss community announced on April 19th that their free Atlassian JIRA instance was targeted by a supposedly previously unknown XSS attack, "which allowed administrative access to the JIRA instance on April 11th, 2010, and subsequently user credentials from a backend database, containing passwords hashed without a random salt." Further details are provided in their announcement. In the meantime, jboss.org account owners (forums, etc.) should be receiving PGP-signed emails providing two links, one for the announcement (the first one leads to an inexistent page, so see the link above) and one for the lost password page in order to change their account password.

For women aged 18-34 it was 49 percent and for women aged 35-44 it was 52 percent. For men aged 18-34, it was 39 percent.
