twoheadedboy writes "Oracle has chosen not to comment on an alleged hack of MySQL.com – the site that has been smashed by cyber criminals on two occasions already this year. A hacker going by the pseudonym D35M0ND142 posted information on Pastebin, claiming it came from, somewhat ironically, a MySQL.com database. Data included in the Pastebin post appeared to feature usernames, emails and passwords of various MySQL.com users. This purportedly included login details of Robin Schumacher, MySQL's director of product management. The news came after two notable hacks on the site earlier this year, one of which saw malware being served from MySQL.com." Link to Original Source
