The Spread Firefox community site got hacked – but how many others don’t we know about?

This content is 19 years old. I don't routinely update old blog posts as they are only intended to represent a view at a particular point in time. Please be warned that the information here may be out of date.

The Spread Firefox community marketing site has been compromised twice in the last few months. Lots of the comments on the web criticise the site administrators for a) letting this happen, and b) their choice of technology to run the website but I think it’s interesting (and commendable, if a touch worrying) that they came clean and told registered users that their details may have been compromised.

I wonder how many sites have been compromised and users haven’t been notified that their details are now in someone else’s possession…
