Dreamhost forces password reset due to security issue.

January 21, 2012

Security advisory from Dreamhost from January 20th, 2012: Changing Shell/FTP Passwords due to Security Issue

Last night we detected some unauthorized activity within one of our databases. While we don’t have evidence that customer passwords were taken at this time, we’re forcing a change out of caution.

If you are Dreamhost customer, you should change your password on the side of caution.

On related note, Dreamhost apparently saves password in clear text.
