Gna! frontend back - change your passwords

Item posted by Beuc <beuc> on Thu 02 Dec 2010 10:24:16 PM UTC.

Following the password compromise at Savannah, which is also running the Savane Forge, we took the frontend down so we could investigate.

The (earlier) version at Gna! appears not to be impacted by the SQL injection. However it also uses (weak) MD5 hashes for storing encrypted passwords.

We took this opportunity to upgrade Savane, and have reset the passwords for safety (all the more since some people have the same password on both websites). We now use crypt(3) with SHA-512.

To change your password, you need to click on "Login" link on the left, and then on "Lost your password?".
