Over the holiday weekend, a number of sites got "Owned and Exposed". At this point, there is not a lot of detail available, but the sites in question did confirm the breach. It should be noted that the site used to distribute the popular backtrack Linux distribution, as well as the Ettercap project got breached. it is not clear for how long these sites were breached and if any of the tools were altered.
