Just weeks after the kernel.org Linux archive site suffered a hacker attack, the Linux Foundation has pulled its websites from the web to clean up from a "security breach."

A notice posted on the Linux Foundation said the entire infrastructure including LinuxFoundation.org, Linux.com, and their subdomains are down for maintenance due to a security breach that was discovered on September 8, 2011.

"The LinuxFoundation made this decision in the interest of extreme caution and security best practices. We believe this breach was connected to the intrusion on kernel.org," the group said.

I'm Shocked, :o Shocked :o I tell you that this could have occurred.
