Canonical bares breach details as Apple continues security silence

Canonical has addressed concerns over a data breach on its forums, explaining what information was stolen and which systems have not been compromised.

Earlier this month, the company's Ubuntu Forums were the subject of a breach, with hackers stealing user information and defacing the website. At the time of the attack, Canonical said that its Ubuntu One, Launchpad, and other Ubuntu/Canonical services were not affected by the breach. However, despite it being clear that the web-forum software vBulletin was to blame, many incorrectly believe that the Linux operating system itself was compromised.

In its latest announcement, Canonical broke down its understanding of how it believes it had been breached.
