Themes.org cracked

Author: JT Smith

From Slashdot: "
sammoth writes "themes.org was hacked [CT:Cracked] and replaced with a rather vulgar logo.
The intruder makes some bold statements about the security, or lack there of, on several sites.
" Of course I'm still in Tokyo right now, so your guess about what's happening is just as
good as mine. And 5000ms ping times to the US East Coast sure makes posting this story
tricky ;) Apparently the cracker managed to get into SourceForge and Apache.org too... and
he posted user accounts and passwords on t.o along with a rant that I haven't seen."
