Another day, another big site hacked. 2013 really just hasn’t been a good year for web security.
This time around, the site writing the email that noone wants to write is Drupal.org, home of the popular content management platform, Drupal. Though no exact number was shared, it appears that nearly one million user accounts are affected.
Also affected are the user accounts of groups.drupal.org, a sub-site meant to help Drupal users establish meetup groups in the real world.
Word of the break-in went out this evening, when Drupal began to email affected users.
