Providing some details from SourceForge:

1. We have had no contact with the TrueCrypt project team (and thus no complaints).

2. We see no indicator of account compromise; current usage is consistent with past usage.

3. Our recent SourceForge forced password change was triggered by infrastructure improvements not a compromise. FMI see http://sourceforge.net/blog/forced-password-change/

Thank you,

The SourceForge Team communityteam@sourceforge.net

I'm calling BS. This site was disabled repeatedly for exceeding bandwidth today. I find it hard to believe traffic is as usual.


Actually, this is standard behavior for the SourceForge project web service. Bandwidth usage is capped to prevent folks from serving files from project web instead of the mirror network-backed download service. Staff saw the surge in traffic to the project web site, confirmed it wasn't file serving activity, and re-enabled the site.


um... we're all looking at the site due to the change. We all used bandwidth.


I think it's fairly safe to say that rgaloppini meant account usage. i.e login and other authenticated activity.
