Dear Richard, dear openSuSE Community,
thanks for informing us about it.
In the face of the largest ransomware attack, the world has seen until today,
(Thanks to the NSA for that), doesn't this implies,
that major authentication infrastructure of openSUSE still bases on pityful
Windows systems or is this just a coincidence?

Dear openSUSE Community,
We have been informed of a security breach of the MF authentication
system used by several openSUSE services.
As a result, the openSUSE services using this authentication method
are immediately being set to read-only mode/preventing authentication.
This includes the openSUSE OBS, wiki, and forums.
The scope and impact of the breach is not yet fully clear. The
disabling of authentication is to ensure the protection of our systems
and user data while the situation is fully investigated.
Based on the information available at this time, there is a
possibility that the breach is limited to users of non-openSUSE
infrastructure that shares the same authentication system.
Regardless, is recommended that all users of the affected services and
openSUSE bugzilla change their password at the following link:
can be used to monitor the status of the
services as the incident is further investigated.
We do not believe any of the openSUSE Download infrastructure has been
compromised, as it does not interact with the MF authentication
remain operational and safe for all of our users
Thank you all for your understanding and support, and expect a further
update as soon as we have more information.
