Linux.com and kernel.org down for maintenance due to security breacheas

On September 8th, 2011 the Linux Foundation found out that some of their servers were breached and decided to suspend the websites until they find out what exactly has happened. The LinuxFoundation.org and Linux.com websites are currently down for maintenance. Interestingly, the foundation associates this breach with the one on kernel.org from August 28th. The http://kernel.org/ website is also down for maintenance since then.

When such a breach happens it can be assumed that all accounts are compromised. We recommend to all users of these websites to change their passwords and their SSH keys used to access various secured resources.
