 Debian Project server hacked

The Debian GNU/Linux project today admitted a hacker had compromised one of its internal servers.

"Early this morning we discovered that someone had managed to compromise gluck.debian.org," Debian developer James Troup wrote in an e-mail to the Debian community shortly before 4am AEST.

"We've taken the machine offline and are preparing to reinstall it," Troup continued, noting a number of key services were currently offline as a result.

The developer said Debian had initiated a security lock-down on most of its other servers, enforcing limited access to the resources.
