The Linux Foundation is reporting this morning that their web sites, including Linux.com, are down for a complete reinstall following a discovered security breach.
The breach was discovered on September 8, and affects Linux.com, LinuxFoundation.org, and all attendant subdomains of those web properties, according to an e-mail sent out early Sunday morning (East Coast time). Kernel.org, though not explicitly described in the e-mail, was also down for maintenance as of 1010 EDT.
