Slashdot's reporting that a system on SourceForge was compromised. At this point, no mention is made of the issue on the site's front page, and the mail sent out to developers who may have been affected simply notes that potentially compromised passwords have been randomized, requiring users to get a new one.
The mail Slashdot quotes, in part:
"You have been contacted, because according to our log files, you have used SourceForge during the past week and may have used the system that was compromised. In order to complete the security fix, we are asking all users who used the system to change their password immediately. We've reset your password to a randomly generated string. "
