Server breach likely to delay Gnome

The Gnome Project said Tuesday that its servers have apparently been breached, potentially delaying the latest release of its desktop system for Linux.

In a e-mail alert sent Tuesday, the managers of the project told developers that they had found evidence indicating that the server hosting had been breached. Gnome and its rival KDE provide the two major desktop systems used on computers running the Linux operating system. "We are investigating further and will provide updates as we know more," Owen Taylor, a member of the Gnome system administration team and a software engineer for Red Hat's desktop group, stated in a two-paragraph advisory on the Gnome Announcements mailing list. "We hope to have the essential services hosted on the affected machine up and running again as soon as possible."
