Anyway, I haven't actually installed and used the software in years, as I haven't had a need for it on my personal machines. But years ago I submitted a few bugs and registered for their site, and visited it on a regular basis. I guess because of that, I was on the list to notify in the event of any compromises. Well I just checked my e-mail, and had this e-mail message sitting in there. You can find more information on the attack on their website at http://www.winehq.or...ber/097753.html .
We are sorry to report that recently our login database for the
WineHQ Bugzilla Database was compromised. We know that the entire
contents of the login database was stolen by hackers. The password
was encrypted, but with enough effort and depending on the quality
of your old password, it could be cracked.
We have closed the hole in our system that allowed read access to
our database tables.
To prevent further damage we have reset your password to what is shown
below. We strongly suggest that if you shared your WineHQ bugs
password on any other sites that you change that password as soon
Login Email: censored
New Password: censored

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
