We have reason to believe that the hoiho server ( may 
have been compromised.  The machine has been shutdown pending an audit 
and probably a reinstall (to be on the safe side).  The kiddie suspected 
of targetting this machine is well known for using password sniffers and 
other attacks to leverage accounts on other machines.  If you have an 
account on hoiho (including a mail account) then I suggest that you 
change your password on any related machine immediately.

Hopefully the kiddie hasn't successfully compromised the machine, but 
we're not taking any chances.   The wiki will be offline until further 

Sorry for any inconvenience,
 Perry Lorier
