According to a Canonical announcement, the Ubuntu Forum has been attacked, and 2 million users’ data compromised. The username and email address were obtained during the attack, but the passwords were not accessed.
As we reported earlier, more than 1 billion users’ data was stolen from Yahoo’s servers by strangers in 2013. In addition, Yahoo mishandled the case, only disclosing the data leak years later. However, it seems that the management does not learn from its mistakes. It has now emerged that in 2014, too, a massive amount of 500 million records fell into unauthorized hands. Further details are not yet known.
