WordPress is currently investigating a series of "[...] suspicious commits to several popular plugins (AddThis, WPtouch, and W3 Total Cache) containing cleverly disguised backdoors. We determined the commits were not from the authors, rolled them back, pushed updates to the plugins, and shut down access to the plugin repository while we looked for anything else unsavory." [1]

If you have a WordPress.org, bbPress.org and BuddyPress.org account, you will be required to choose a new password. You can change your password here.
