Animats writes "SourceForge, a hosting site for many open source projects, is down today. Management claims they were attacked: 'We detected a direct targeted attack that resulted in an exploit of several SourceForge.net servers, and have proactively shut down a handful of developer centric services to safeguard data and protect the majority of our services.' Currently, CVS and SVN access to source code, even for reading, is unavailable, and there is no announced restoration time."
(SourceForge and Slashdot are both part of Geeknet, Inc.) Update: 01/27 22:17 GMT
: Mark Ramm of SourceForge contributes an update and some clarification: the site is up, and SVN is
available, though CVS isn't. There's also a follow-up post
on the site's blog.
