Today some whitehat on IRC decided to paste this on irc:

 

13:13 < n0tryan> mysqldump -hnewnova.theshore.net --all-databases -ulinode -pcfr41qa --lock-tables=false -f

13:13 < n0tryan> GUYS

13:13 < n0tryan> PLEASE DO NOT HACK LINODE

   

And that appears to be the credentials to linodes database server that for example hosts their forums. All user logins leaked again, well played linode.

13:40 -!- VS_ChanLog [~stats@ns.theshore.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

Looks like they just pulled the plug.

The data on that hack seems to be from 2003.  Who cares?

Apparently Linode doesn't, otherwise that would never have been online in the first place for someone to snatch.

If the data was from 2003 or even 2010, the data is useless, as there was already a force password reset.
