That's right, the slashdot database has been compromised. Looks like two hackers from the Netherlands. For more information visit: http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=00/09/29/0231248
I will provide more details when they are available.

A quick update
 
It looks like a default admin password on a test box was the culprit. Incidentally this is the way that the Open Hack site went down. The moral of the story? Change those default passwords!
