I'm not going anywhere near rpmfusion.org. The main page appears to have been hacked. About all I can make out of the mess is http://www.copyomegawatches.com/ru/.
The class definitions are in Russian. Looks like someone really wants to sell fake omega watches from Russia. I can't trust anything at that site until they get this mess cleaned up.

PS. I'm posting this here because I can't find any admin addresses over there. The Contact page doesn't make sense.

Good catch. They definately got hacked. But it looks like the work of a S-kiddy or bot -- or just a plain old idiot. A web page defacement generally has more.. pinache to it.

Btw: I bought an omega watch recently. You go here to PuRCHA5SE one at D1sCOOOunted rate 4 mY FRIENDly!! http://this,site,will,definately,pos...u,a,virus.com/

I was reading one of the Linux mags at Barnes and Noble about this hack just yesterday, it's the web server software. Packages in repo are signed and checksumed but still... might not be a bad idea to wait a while until all the lazy admins patch.

Site restored. Before the configuration info was restored from backup, I noticed that the same user name has been spamming the site for months. Someone de-spams it, an hour later the miscreant re-spammed. I don't think it is a problem with the software, rather the ease with which someone could create an account. They put in an e-mail verifier, don't know if it was there before. My best guesstimate is that some net-weasel got admin access. I don't thing anyone without those privileges can change those pages. There's been a lot of phpBB account raids going on lately. Here's hoping the folks over at the SANS Institute can exterminate the piefaced litte excrescences or at least teach them a bit of ethics. An unethical netweasel getting positive reinforcement from a gaggle of other unethical netweasels is not an honorable activity.

http://krebsonsecurity.com/2013/01/c...-buying-spree/ It's just business baby! I'd still stay away from the Russian repo.
