Spread Firefox Attacked

“As you’ve no doubt noticed, we’ve been down for a few days. We took the site down to investigate an attack on the site. It appears that a part of Spread Firefox was hacked in an attempt to use it to send out spam. It doesn’t look like the attacker accessed any personal data on the site, but to be safe, we’re encouraging all of our users to log in and change their passwords. If you have an account with Spread Firefox, you probably received an email about this with instructions for updating your password.”
