SourceForge Down After Attack [Updated] 143

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 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 by T : 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.
