So it actually happened! Not surprising at all. I suspected at first
sight about a phish attempt because the email in another domain they
sent for contact in case of problems with password reset (didn't
bothered about headers anyway).

Seems mine was not compromised according to what they say "Our
analysis uncovered (among other things) a hacked SSH daemon, which was
modified to do password capture."

If i were them I would reinstall from scratch at least all SSH
servers. They all could be compromised!

Hi Andrew,

just a reminder: this breach was used by php/python/perl script for get
save on user directory bot and remote shell. Also you could, as reported
also in owned and exposed zine, launch commands and attempt privilege
escalation. So I'm not so sure that this is not so writable as well i
is not right sayd that is not   critical.

It's not particularly critical by any means. SourceForge projects all
their own web space, and there are doubtless a bunch of them running
vulnerable versions of software. These sites are relatively isolated, and
don't have write access to the project's SCM or downloads.
